“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......”

West African Ebony

Diospyros crassiflora

West African Ebony (also known as Gabon Ebony from West Africa) has been a standard fingerboard wood for years. It is more stable than other Ebonies and compares well to Macassar Ebony (diospyros celebica) which is becoming harder and harder to legally obtain. West African Ebony is rarely pure-black, but the streaks and mottling that is indicative of this Ebony make it an attractive wood for acoustic backs and sides.
