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!"

South East Asian Rosewood

Dalbergia Bariensis and/or Dalbergia Cochinensis

Few woods compare with Brazilian Rosewood as nicely as this one and it's superb density has led many to claim that it is superior. Our sets exhibit an extremely lively, sonorous tap tone. The color ranges from a warm brick-red (reminiscent of Honduran Rosewood) to an attractive rust-brown color. Less porous than most Rosewoods, it finishes nicely and is not difficult to bend for such a dense wood. We don't expect to be able to obtain this wood in the future as there is little legal wood available. As these sets consist of the two species above mixed and matched, we are unable to export it since cochinensis is CITES II listed.
