Ebony Woods start off as 1" x 1" x 12" Square Wood Stock.. They are cut to 1" round srock and the Ebony Bodies are machined.
Finishing is a Cyano Acrylate (CA) Clear Coat that is sanded and buffed/polished to a high gloss.
The Ebony woods are actually, a beautiful, super dark brown.. They require a brighter than normal light to see the wood grains/patterns.
The "Negative side" of Good Ebony, is, with a High Gloss Finish ( HGF) , the ebony looks like Black plastic.
