“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......”

Tieblock Inlays

TIEBLOCKInlayTBIL800
The TBIL bone pieces, left, are inlaid into the edges of classical guitar bridge tieblocks to prevent string damage. 2-3 pieces are required to complete a tieblock.

The TBMOP/TBMOPL Mother-of-Pearl tieblock inlay, right, can be inlaid directly into the tieblock, or it can be used as the center of a tieblock overlay, bordered by thin pieces of bone.
