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!"

D’Angelico Plane

DAngelicoPlanesPLDSPLDL
These silicon-bronze planes are a study in cooperation. They are based on patterns from Jimmy D'Aquisto's round sole planes for carving archtops and backs that were originally given to him by John D'Angelico. They've been worked, reworked and refined with input from Steven Andersen, Steve Klein, Bob Benedettto, Marc Maingard, Guy Rabut, and Steven Marchione.

The high carbon steel blades (made by Ron Hock) are about a third thicker than standard blades, and offer more stability and closer throat settings.
