    I've done a search for this wood in all the forums. Didn't find anything.

    What's the deal with this mystery wood? What are the sonic properties of it? for a top/back of a bass? similar to other woods?

    Search on "chechen", the more conventional spelling. Dozens of hits.

    See also black poisonwood. Metopium Browneii.

    It's medium-heavy in density, moderately oily, fine grained.
