“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......”

Archtop Back & Side Sets - Maple

Bigleaf Maple is a beautiful domestic choice for an archtop. It finishes beautifully and sounds excellent. Bigleaf can occasionally have a stringy texture and be a bit difficult to work, but it is not enough to deter builders – as its popularity demonstrates. 

European Maple has a fine texture, carves easily and has a creamy white color. The figure it exhibits is extraordinary especially under finish.

These sets are two piece bookmatched
The backs measure 9" x 22" x 1" at center.  •  The sides measure 3" x 34" x 3mm.
