WOOD CUSTOMIZATION

Top wood selection is good to make according to what is planned for guitar finish; solid colored or translucent colored guitar to be made. Solid colored guitars do not require curly, figured or flamed body woods. We have already many good configurations body and neck wood. We use mostly mahogany and Spanish cedar for body and neck.  After body and neck wood selection, proceed to top wood and fretboard and iterate when needed.  We help you with wood selection.
