Testimonials

"Just received my latest classical guitar kit. I had a couple of requests for wood selection, and you did a great job in selecting on both counts,
In addition, all the wood was great quality - this was an expensive kit, but your product made it a very good value to me.

Thanks for the great work!"

Khaya

BSKhaya600Khaya ivorensis

Khaya (often referred to as African Mahogany) ranges in color from light pink to medium brown to reddish brown. The figure on well-quartered pieces is the characteristic stripe resulting from interlocked grain. It is a strong wood with a coarser texture than Honduran Mahogany or Sapele, and has good tonal qualities. Workability, stability and  low cost make this a very desireable tonewood.

Note: Sides can be difficult to bend because of variation in density within the piece (less water in bending is better than more).
