See the tiny white specks of sap in this beautiful piece of Indian Rosewood? Because of these specks, this piece of timber didn't pass Martin's ruthless quality control tests. Martin offer a lifetime warranty on every single guitar sold in America. If this timber was used in a guitar it might be fine forever or it could just crack one day. Either way, Martin don't take the risk. This will now be sold as a second to an independent luthier or hobbyist somewhere. Nothing is wasted!
