Testimonials

"I’m about 10 tops into a stack of 40 cedar tops I got from you, and whenever I want to start a new guitar, I just walk over and pick a top off the stack, and start building.
They are all that great! I don’t have to dink around with the pattern, or select the “best" one: I just start building. I love that!  I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your high standards, and what a pleasure it is to do business with you!"

BUBINGA, plain
Didelotia africana or Guibourtia sp.

Bubinga is a wood that has been used for years with success. Harder and heavier than either Brazilian or Indian Rosewood, Bubinga is sometimes known as African Rosewood, although it's not a Dalbergia. It has a medium texture with interlocking grain. Bubinga varies in color from pinkish-mauve to golden blondes and oxidizes beautifully to rich darker tones over time. Because of its interlocking grain, it can be like some of the more difficult Mahogany to bend.
