Top Woods

Adirondack Spruce has become my first choice for top wood.

Light and stiff, it produces a tone that is at once powerful and sweet. Headroom as well as dynamic response are excellent. This is the standard top wood for my guitars

Sinker Western Red Cedar  is the smoothest of tones, and has an immediacy of response that makes for an intimate connection

Back & Side Woods

Honduran Rosewood

The traditional wood for Marimba bars, this is my favorite tonewood from a blindfolded perspective. Resonant, rich, stiff enough to shape a guitar's tone into powerful, clear notes.

Oregon Myrtle is at once striking and unique. Sounding similar to Koa, it adds tremendous beauty and color to an instrument

Macassar Ebony

Harvested on a plantation in indonesia 50 years ago, the boards I have were given to me by a retired timber baron. The tone is glassy and clear, deep low end and bright trebles. (4 piece backs only)

Hawaiian Koa

Koa has always been a royal wood, and it's visual impact remains first rate. It's acoustic qualities are in the middle of the spectrum, between mahogany and rosewood
