“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......”

Nuts/Saddles/Tieblock

 
Bone has long been considered the best choice for nuts and saddles. We believe our nut and saddle blanks (made from cow pelvis and femur) are the best available, non-porous and cut square and even. In addition to our standard white bone pieces, we now offer unbleached bone which, according to Frank Ford, is even harder and has a warm 'vintage -like' appearance. Also listed here are Corian nut and saddle blanks and bone tie block inlay pieces for classical guitar bridges.
