Backs & Sides

I have a large and varied selection of woods sourced from around the world. All woods used in my instruments are hand selected and well seasoned in my shop. Each piece is unique and lends a one-of-a-kind character to the final instrument, both in sound and aesthetic.

A small sampling of the shop wood selection is shown here, from Ebonies to Rosewoods to Walnuts, Acacias, Myrtles and Maples. Top woods are various spruces from Adirondack, Sitka, Lutz and European to California Redwood and Western Red Cedar.
