Jatoba is a hardwood that is native to Central and South America. It is reddish brown in color and has a straight grain with a medium texture. Jatoba is a popular choice for building guitars because it has a high strength-to-weight ratio, making it highly durable yet lightweight. It also has a bright, clear tone and good sustain, making it an excellent choice for both acoustic and electric guitars.

I'm Joost Nusselder, the founder of Neaera and a content marketer, dad, and love trying out new equipment with guitar at the heart of my passion, and together with my team, I've been creating in-depth blog articles since 2020 to help loyal readers with recording and guitar tips.
