“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 entirey by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a driss 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......”

Fingerboards

FingerboardStockedShelveswSizes800

All of our fingerboards are kiln dried right here in our Windsor, California warehouse to insure that they are as stable as possible. We usually have more than 10,000 fingerboards in stock at any given time as we supply most of the major manufacturers. If you want to stock up (25 or more units), call us about getting a quote for extended quantity discounts.

All the boards are guaranteed to be free of cracks, even in the lower grades. Our fingerboards are free from warpage when we ship them, though some boards (Ebony particularly) may move a little when shipping to different climates. Usually, this can be corrected by weighing the board down between stickers for a while and should pose no problems once the fingerboard is glued down to the neck.

Grading on our fingerboards is usually based on aesthetic factors such as coloration and grain patterns The grading criteria vary from species to species. Visit the individual pages for our explanation of what we mean by 1st grade, 2nd grade etc.
