Mustache Bridge..Indian or Brazilian Rosewood..?

Recommended Posts


On a finished Back & Sides I can tell...but in the raw..not really..

Brazilian or Indian would you say?

The fingerboard is dark like this bridge as well.


A correction Gibson should do..The Mustache bridge is a major focal point on the j200 guitar..

Most of the mustache bridges look too spagetti like & stamped out..this focal point has lost a lot of its character.

The curves should be rounded on top not flat like so many are to start and add some beef there as well.


This is the photo bucket link as I cant get the picture directly on here...I need lessons.. ; )

If you click the photo itself it enlarges.Thanks

Oops I meant Madagascar rosewood is often used by Gibson (it's their mahogany that is usually from Honduras). It often has that 'figured' look too. My J-45 standard has beautiful 'flamey' rosewood on the fretboard and bridge.


It's not Brazilian though.
