I was showing a friend of mine pictures of my Roscoe SKB3006 from 'BlueberryHill's' website. He's a carpenter, so the pictures of the top woods was of interest to him. He said he has a supply of a hardwood called 'Paloupe'. I asked him if he meant 'Paduak', but he was familiar with Paduak, no this wood he has is called Paloupe. Has anyone even heard of this wood before? If so, is it a wood that could be used as a top wood on a solid body bass? I haven't been by his place to see it for myself, but he tells me it's a dark, dense wood with a straight grain. It also says it's from South America. I'd appreciate any info. Thanks, -A.P.
