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!"

Tasmanian Myrtle

BSTasmanianMyrtleWTMA400

Nothofagus cunninghamii

This is a wood from Tasmania that is sure to get a lot of attention. The color ranges from light reddish beige to pinkish-purples and is sometimes reminiscent of Pink Ivory. Some sets have attractive brown streaks and others have gray-brown sapwood centers. It is not related to either Pink Ivory or North American Myrtle but rather European Beech, though is tropical origins and unique color separate it from the Beech that most are familiar with - as does its robust tap tone. It bends well and finishes to a high luster.
