“Dear Sir,
A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with Sitka top.
I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce.
The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirely by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a drill press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them.
It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career.
Many Thanks.
ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”

Black Walnut, figured

Juglans nigra

Black Walnut is grown in the Eastern United States. Our stock runs the gamut from crotch figure, to straight grained flamed, to unfigured. The crotch figure characterized by irregular figure often in a "V" pattern can be a bit unstable, but once it is thinned and braced it should be fine. We don't recommend the crotch figure for new builders.
