Testimonials

“Great service! 
I have been impressed with the quality of the items I've received (especially the fretboards). You've been very helpful with some unusual builds (the suggestion to order a bass fretboard slotted from both ends for two short-scale necks was brilliant). I was very surprised at how quickly I received an order of custom-length truss rods. You have a very happy customer."

Diospyros celebica

Macassar Ebony is one of our most striking tonewoods. In addition to a large group of hand-makers who use it, there are a number of prominent manufacturers who offer it on their more deluxe models, including Breedlove, McPherson, and Goodall. From Celebes and Sulawesi Island in East Indonesia, Macassar Ebony offers good stability and superb, Rosewood-like tonality. Pair it with a nice white Engelmann Spruce top for an instrument of striking visual and sonic quality.

The appearance of the Macassar Ebony varies widely. So, each set is priced and shown individually in our "select-a-set" format.
