Tone wood

Selected, long matured European and tropical tone wood and precious wood grant your instrument colour and elegance. I also produce guitars completely free of tropical wood for you. Of course I advise you on the choice of woods for your guitar.

For concert guitars you can choose from the following tone woods:

European wood

  • Walnut
  • Fruitwoods, like cherry, plum, pear, apple, and beam-tree
  • Flamed maple, Bird’s eye maple, quilted maple
  • Cypress

Tropical wood

  • East-Indian rosewood
  • Santos rosewood
  • African rosewood
  • Macassar Ebony
  • Cocobolo
  • Bubinga
  • Padouk
  • Ovenkol
