I have decided to move away from the over-exploited tropical hardwoods, in favour of more sustainable, local timbers.
And although I have around forty sets of superb, aged Indian Rosewood - which I shall show here when it is thicknessed and jointed - it is unlikely that I shall be purchasing any more.

Most of these 'alternative' woods listed below are from trees that have come down in storms, or been individually felled, and they will all make excellent and distinctive guitars. All of these woods are available as a no-cost option on custom builds.
