“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......”

Bridge Plate

BridgeplatePlatesPadsFor reinforcing the bridge area, Maple or Rosewood bridge plates are used on steel string guitars underneath the soundboard, as illustrated. For classical guitars a bridge pad is often used, which adds stability and increases stiffness across the grain. Usually there is enough material left from the soundboard to make this pad, but should you run short we have made them available here.
