Testimonials

“Great service! 
I have been impressed with the quality of the items I've received (especially the fretboards). You've been very helpful with some unusual builds (the suggestion to order a bass fretboard slotted from both ends for two short-scale necks was brilliant). I was very surprised at how quickly I received an order of custom-length truss rods. You have a very happy customer."

Khaya

Khaya 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).
