“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 entirely by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a drill 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......”

Side Bending

SHOPsidebendingcutaway200

BENDING SIDES / BENDING CUTAWAY SIDES
We have a tremendous amount of side bending experience. We will bend any of the woods that we offer into the shapes listed below. Allow about a week for side bending – each order is essentially custom.

Sides are sanded to 0.090" before bending.

This table shows how your sides will be tapered (straight taper) for each type of guitar shape we bend. Additional material will need to be removed (with a bandsaw or hand plane) to bring the sides to their final profile.
