Materials  
I travel the world to find and acquire the absolute finest wood available and then season it in a humidity-controlled environment. It is very important to me to ensure that the materials I use in my instruments are responsibly sourced.

Some options for the materials are:

Soundboard

  • Spruce
  • Cedar

Back & Sides

  • Rosewood
  • Cypress
  • Koa
  • European Maple

The neck is made of Spanish Cedar or Mahogany, the fingerboard of Ebony, the bracing stock is split from Spruce billets and the bridge is made of Rosewood.

Premium Gotoh tuners are standard and other options (Alessi, Scheller, etc.) are available at additional cost.
