Testimonials

“I recently purchased a beautiful fingerboard from you and now I am thinking of grabbing fretwire from you as well. Unfortunately I'm cheap and lazy and find myself here asking if it is possible to pay more to have your fretwire radiused before it is sent? You guys would be the coolest ever. No matter what the outcome, I will be sending more business your way from here in Maine. Hoping for good news! Thank you!"

Acacia Melanoxylon

Known as Australian Blackwood to many because of the tree's bark, this not-to-distant cousin of the Koa tree (Koa is itself an Acacia) offers many of the features of the popular Hawaiian wood. An excellent alternative to the Rosewoods, it has a luminescence and depth similar to Mahogany. The tap tone is roughly the same as Koa, and some say it makes a better sounding guitar. Though the tree grows well in our own region of northern California and many other places such as Africa and India, the best sets are imported from Australia where this wood has been a mainstay for most of the fine builders there. Other adherents include classical and flamenco guitar builder Kenny Hill and steel string builders Mike Baranik and McPherson Guitars.

NOTE: Black Acacia with grades good and below may have small blemishes in the pattern (small knots or very subtle spikes).
