Testimonials

"I’m about 10 tops into a stack of 40 cedar tops I got from you, and whenever I want to start a new guitar, I just walk over and pick a top off the stack, and start building.
They are all that great! I don’t have to dink around with the pattern, or select the “best" one: I just start building. I love that!  I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your high standards, and what a pleasure it is to do business with you!"

T’zalam

BSTzalam2setsGENERIC800Lysiloma spp.

T'zalam, also commonly called Mayan Walnut  is not a "true Juglans genus Walnut". It is even-colored, straight-grained, and very easy to work. The color is a light to medium mocha with contrasting dark gray grain lines. Even the plain sets have a very subtle flame figure. A few sets may have a blonde sapwood center.
