Wood Options

We believe the quality of construction in a guitar supercedes everything else but the woods used are what gives a guitar it’s flavor.  There is almost an infinite variety of woods that can be used in a guitar to create the kind of tone a person would like.  You may choose the types of wood you would like your guitar built from and feel free to e-mail us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
