Testimonials

“Great service! 
I have been impressed with the quality of the items I've received (especially the fretboards). You've been very helpful with some unusual builds (the suggestion to order a bass fretboard slotted from both ends for two short-scale necks was brilliant). I was very surprised at how quickly I received an order of custom-length truss rods. You have a very happy customer."

Japanese Luthiers Saws

All the Japanese luthiers saws featured here are pull saws – they cut only on the pull stroke. Cutting on the pull stroke tends to keep the blade straighter which in turn allows for a thinner blade. A thinner blade results in less friction and a fast and controlled cut with a high degree of accuracy.
