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."

Koa

BSKoaBradDavis600Acacia Koa

Hawaiian Koa is easily one of the most sought after tonewoods available, with colors ranging from brown to gold with rich and varying grain. It is also becoming a rare commodity. As a result, you will see some minor defects in the pattern area that we now consider acceptable due to it's scarcity.

Koa looks as exotic as the region it's from. With an open pore structure like Mahogany, it needs to be filled, but works well in all respects with the usual care taken for curly figure.

PLEASE NOTE:
Due to the scarcity of good material, Koa is undeniably expensive. If you are looking for something less expensive, consider the Black Acacia. It is a very close cousin of Koa. Possessing all of Koa's most desirable traits, it is nearly indistinguishable!
