    It should do seeing as it translates to 'iron wood' from the Portuguese. Although ironwood is something completely different to pao ferro.

    All 4 of the founders have left, but the future is looking fine for the company.

    I have all three, and based on my limited experience, yeah Pau is right betwen RW and ebony. They are all fine, honestly. Based on what I've been seeing the past few years, it seems like both Fender and Gibson are really hard up for decent wood. A good reason to try (at least see) before you buy no matter the brand or wood.

    And yeah, I don't know what "pao ferro" really is, but the same is true of mahogany and other species too. There's lots of kinds of trees out there, just fewer and fewer of the good kind.
