Bodies & Assembly


The bodies are carefully assembled by hand one at a time in climate controlled rooms. Numerous styles and sizes are available from a small size parlor to large concert style jumbo instruments. Some are 12 fret to body some are 14 fret or even 13 fret to body. Traditional style to cut-a-way to the unusual. Mahogany linings and side bracing provide a light yet rigid body structure and are used for most standard models. Tops and backs are arched slightly to increase their strength and stability.

Backs and Sides

There are a wide variety of woods available for backs and sides. For Additional woods see our custom area. Backs and sides are constructed from well seasoned solid wood. Woods are chosen for their acoustic properties as well as for their aesthetic beauty. Because of the very nature of wood to two instruments will ever be the same in appearance.
