WOOD

Through decades of building experiences, I have attained mastery in using both conventional and exotic tonewoods in making guitars. My efforts in experimenting with various other tropical and other exotic woods have attained success in producing instruments with more variety of tonal qualities. Local woods are personally harvested. They are carefully treated and processed to match the industry standards of the other common tonewoods used in instruments building. My success in making guitars by these local woods has elevated their commercial values instead of perceiving them as trivial and low in value.
