“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......”

Cocobolo Rosewood Bridge Blank

BBCocoboloWBKCOCO500Cocobolo bridge blanks require more care than other woods when gluing to a top, but they're worth the effort. Cocobolo offers rich colors, it is exceptionally sonorous and is denser than Indian Rosewood. Because the wood is oily, be sure to wipe the surface with acetone, wait until the acetone gasses off and then glue right away before more oils reach the surface.
