“Dear Sir,
A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with Sitka top.
I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce.
The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirely by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a drill press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them.
It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career.
Many Thanks.
ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”

Imbuia Electric Tops

Imbuia, a difficult to source hardwood from Brazil, presents a wide variety of interesting grain patterns - quilt, burl-like, dark streaks and broad wave-like curl are among the different 'figures' we encounter in Imbuia. Every drop-top is unique, however the color is very consistent; a pleasing dark brown color with secondary amber and tobacco hues. Small voids are common place with this wood (fill with a combination of epoxy and wood dust), otherwise, it is non-porous and finishes nicely. It's a medium density wood that promises a maple-like effect on the tone of the instrument.
