LATEST NEWS - Update as of 3 April 2019

Some interesting articles and new instrument releases that continue the focus on alternatives to Indian Rosewood, specifically domestically available tonewoods.  I was recently able to catch-up on some long overdue milling of some billets from the genus betula or 'poor man's Maple'........Birch.  Birch certainly does offer another domestically-sourced tonewood alternative that doesn't disappoint, especially the Gray's and Yellow's with character.

Another exotic alternative to Rosewood is Katalox.  A beautiful looking and sounding tonewood, it was used on a recently completed Round-shouldered Dreadnought that is featured on the Just Off the Bench Page.
