Alembic guitars has used this wood on numerous occasions for custom instruments. Ibanez uses it for the five-piece necks of some of their electric basses. Warwickelectric basses use it for fingerboards.

The wood is sometimes used in the making of archery bows, particularly as a laminate in the production of flatbows. It can also be used in the making of rails or pin blocks on hammered dulcimers.
