Am I playing so fast that I’ve scorched the ebony?
Yes, this! G&L has been using Macassar ebony since 1980. It's an Asian species and can be brown and streaky or jet black and everything in between. Some companies will dye it black, though G&L does not and the lighter pieces are often confused as being rosewood.Ebony can be brown and have grain.
