Wood & Hardware

This guitar celebrates the unique wood species used for this build. The body is made of temperature treated noble chestnut. It has similar characteristics to swamp ash regarding grain and weight but it is locally harvested in Europe.

The neck is made of a beautifully grained piece of walnut. The open grained structure feels beautiful in the player’s hand.

Both body and neck are treated with Odie’s Oil. On the one hand it is the perfect finish to expose the beautiful figure of the wood. On the other hand it is a coating which let’s the instrument resonate freely.

To further support sustain, this guitar features a Grainger hardtail bridge in conjunction with a Grainger string ferrule block.
