Negatory sir! Dalbergia is the genus that rosewoods fall under:

Dalbergia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Dalbergia Nigra is the "fancy"/"prized" Brazilian stuff which they ran out of so they changed the name to just "Dalbergia" because people whined when they actually said they were using Mexican rosewood a while back as if that were something negative about the wood. But yeah dalbergia is just the generic family that rosewoods fall under in the plant kingdom.

I know right? I'd be a horrible dealer as half the stock I'd order would end up not leaving the shop if I worked with PRS! Pretty sweet perk for sure!


That's a KILLER collection Nick, the PS and the ME are my faves but all four are awesome! How do the 53/10 pickups sound? A lot of guys said they were lower output like the 57/08s I believe? I'd imagine that low-mid output pickups + solid rosewood neck would be a pretty badass combo, then again I love the midrange that RW necks add to the mix regardless!

Guitars: PRS, Thorn, Suhr, Parker, ESP, Schecter
