“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......”

Walnut, Peruvian

Juglans neotropica

Peruvian Walnut is a nice, dark chocolate brown color, often with interesting, broad, dark lines. Most sets will have some small, subtle gray mineral spots. 

Peruvian Walnut is a great value to beginners looking for quality at a low price. It bends easily and offers a clear/open tone with excellent depth and strong trebles.
