“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 entirey by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a driss 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......”

T’zalam, figured

Lysiloma spp.

T'zalam, also commonly called Mayan Walnut  is not a "true Juglans genus Walnut". It is even-colored, straight-grained, and very easy to work. The color is a light to medium mocha with contrasting dark gray grain lines. Even the plain sets have a very subtle flame figure. A few sets may have a blonde sapwood center.

Premium flame, strong flame, good flame and subtle flame T’zalam sets are featured on this page.
