Testimonials

"....My friend and I have been building guitars in my high school woodworking class over the course of this school year. This will be the last order we place for this project, and I wanted to say that we have found your website, products, and customer service to be extremely useful. When my friend encountered some issues with bending the sides he purchased, he emailed your company to ask for advice, and, very quickly, received very helpful advice."

Nomex

 

 

Nomex® is a lightweight honeycomb fiber originally developed by Dupont Chemical for the aviation industry. It is being used by innovative luthiers in the creation of "double tops" (also called "hollow tops").

We carry three sizes of Nomex. The NOMEX and NOMEXT have an 1/8" honeycomb and weigh 1.8 pounds per cubic foot. The NOMEXW has a 1/4" honeycomb and weighs 2.0 pounds per cubic foot.

Nomex is available in larger dimensions, call for details.

The two videos, below, by
luthier and instructor Robert O'Brien
demonstrate double top construction.
