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!"

In recent decades Indian Rosewood has been the most widely used wood around the world for fingerboards on production electric and acoustic guitars. Although it is not as wear resistant as Ebony or some of the more dense Rosewoods, larger production facilities value it for its greater stability, lower cost and more colorful grain. It is also lighter than Ebony but with equal longitudinal strength when glued to the neck.

GRADING:

  • Premium grade: If we have these, they will be well quartered, with unusually dark even color. Grain is basically straight, no coarse grain or mineral deposits Less than 1% of the boards we receive fall into this category and they sell briskly, so we are often out of stock.

  • 1st grade: Well quartered, good even color, grain is basically straight, no coarse grain or mineral deposits.

  • 2nd grade: Basically quartered and free of structural defects, these boards may exhibit one or more of the following attributes: light color, coarse grain, slight mineral deposits, uneven color and/or grain that is not perfectly straight.
