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!"

Walnut, Black

Juglans nigra

Black Walnut is grown in the Eastern United States. Our stock runs the gamut from crotch figure, to straight grained flamed, to unfigured. The crotch figure characterized by irregular figure often in a "V" pattern can be a bit unstable, but once it is thinned and braced it should be fine. We don't recommend the crotch figure for new builders.
