“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......”

End Blocks/Tail Blocks

ITBEndBlocksGROUP
 

The end block is the block that stabilizes the end of the guitar where the sides meet at the lower bout. The long edges of the block can be chamfered for an attractive look on the inside of your guitar.

The Khaya block is a good substitute for Honduran Mahogany (which can't be shipped due to CITES restrictions) for our international customers.

NOTE: The grain of end block follows the grain of the sides.


SKU Product Name In Stock Each  
TBKH End block, Khaya, 5" x 3" x 1"
Yes $4.50
TBSS End block, Spruce, 5" x 3" x 1"
Yes $4.50

Mahogany is a traditional choice, but using Spruce will lower the weight of the guitar. Choose Spruce if you do not live in the United States as there are shipping restrictions for Honduran Mahogany.
