This wonderful aromatic tone wood is also known as Mediterranean Cypress. Spanish Cypress has been used in Europe for making many types of musical instruments for the past five centuries, it was one of the most popular body woods for the Lute and was one of the most popular tone woods used in guitar construction during the 1800s.
During this time it was considered a less expensive timber when compared to the rosewoods and other non-domestic timbers that attracted high shipping charges in Europe. It was a used by Antonio De Torres for his less ornate classical guitars, many of these guitars are still surviving.

From the 1900s onwards cypress became more and more used exclusively for Flamenco Guitars.

This tone wood is light weight, stiff and brittle, it produces a quick, bright, dry tone with powerful projection. It is a light coloured wood with a creamy colour similar to wheat

Due to it's history and popularity, stocks of this timber have become very low, it is becoming hard to acquire and expensive.
