Design Features

Tonewoods : Soundboards

 Primary topwoods used are sitka and Engelmann Spruce, red cedar, red spruce, and redwood. Included in an order is one of the first three - for the other two there is a small upcharge.

 Each have some quality that endears them. I encourage those who are unfamiliar with the tone of these to peruse the soundcloud files.

Necks

Laminated and carbon fibre reinforced neck. Choice of Walnut, Mahogany or Maple with thin black purfle in the center. All necks are supported by a two-way truss-rod, accessible through soundhole (except for mandolins). Adjustment key included. 
Default finish is gloss lacquer, but an oil-finish is also available.
