Building sustainable guitars


My current focus is on using sustainable woods in an attempt to protect our depleting tropical forest reserves.

 

My stock of Brazilian rosewood is all Pre-CITES 1 and can be supplied with proof thereof. All my other Dalbergia rosewoods are Pre-CITES 2 and proof is available.

 

My method of French polishing with shellac makes exclusive use of human arm power, drinkable alcohol (96% ethanol) and a secretion from the lac beetle plus the addition of a special recipe of natural gums.
