GvFC Platino intuition has 3 colour option, sure Ebony and Grendilla are both great, but I really like the Pernambuco wood.

By the time I spend on trying to buy it from internet, I realize its not an easy task.
And my friend tells me that Pernambuco product has been stopped.

So here comes some question:
1. Is Pernambuco really out of the production line?
2. If its true, is it because shortage of material or quality control issue?

3. 😂😂Last but not least, whats the fair price of Pernambuco now?😍😍

Indeed, GvFC phased it out.
In would not assume any of QC issues (not aware of any) or shortage of material - more a busiess decision.

Agree with you, it’s not the QC issue.
I just realized classic model still use Pernambuco!

The Pernambuco are my favorite too.

 

It is hard to tell what a fair price would be, since they were expensive to start and very rarely come up for sale.

 

I don't actively pursue them anymore, but did so for a couple of years. I have never seen one for sale.

So, I settled with my Elemento  ;) !

IIRC the issue is an International Restriction on the sale and importation of the wood itself. It is listed as an Edangered Species and while not yet on the forbidden list like Ivory it is increasingly expensive and hard to find.
