Figure “to die for” makes this set of Ziricote almost worth its weight in gold. And this is just one of 27 extraordinary back and side sets that are now being offered for sale by a recently retired luthier known internationally for his exotic custom-made guitars
The Holy Grail of tonewoods, especially when it’s perfectly book-matched and blessed with spectacular figure, highlighted, as it is here, by a sensual blend of reds, browns, blacks and smoky-emerald greens. An instrument made with this exquisite set of Brazilian rosewood could very well define the pinnacle of guitarmaking art
This gorgeous set of quilted bubinga, from Equatorial Africa, is large enough to make virtually any type of guitar from a steel-string acoustic to a “classic” classical. Sapwood areas running along both the back and sides further enhance its appearance
Some sets are so rare that they are essentially "priceless" and virtually irreplaceable. The search for this set, which lasted for 6 years, finally resulted in the discovery of these perfect back and sides in the jungles of French Guiana, just north of Brazil. Check the Catalog to see how much this stunning set of book-matched snakewood is currently worth.
