All of nature’s miraculous seasons are embodied in this beautiful series of 4 guitars.
And there’s more to come…
Lapacho sinker wood reclaimed from 75 years deep under the flooded plains of the Panama Canal, shows lighter flecks and stripes, representing the blur of an evening snow storm. Winter snows, in the form of Mother of Pearl and Oyster shell inlays, are also the focus in the blue pillowy clouds of the figured Maple rosette. Thanks to the Lapacho, the winter guitar has a clear, crisp voice and is well rounded with a full bass and clear tonal qualities. Pictured here, is the OM model with 25.4″ scale length, 14 fret to the neck, Gotoh 510 tuners, and features a beveled arm rest. 15″ lower bout, 11-1/4″ upper bout, 4-1/2″ deep, 19-5/16″ long. Can be crafted as Parlour, OOO, OO, OM, MJ, or Dreadnaught.
Lapacho, also know as Brazilian Walnut or IPE, is one of the world’s most stable woods.
A time of renewal and re-birth, the first flowers of spring are always a welcome sight. The rare Brazilian Tulipwood is a beautiful representation of spring colours and all that Tulips represent. Purple Plum wood was chosen for the floral rosette, the headstock and the binding. A big sound from a small package… this Brazilian Tulipwood bodied guitar has deep soothing basses and sweet highs. It is coupled with a West coast Red Cedar top that brings out the sustain and warmth of the instrument nicely. 24.9 scale, 12 fret to the neck, slotted peghead with Swiss made Schertler Tuning Machine heads. 9.125″ upper bout, 12.187″ lower bout, 4″ deep, 18.38″ long. Can be crafted as a Parlour only.
Brazilian Tulipwood is a different species from other common Tulipwood: it shares all tonal aspects of Brazilian rosewood with a brilliant punch of color. It is a premier tone-wood for steel string guitars, which offers a loud, warm, and rich tone with good separation of voice.
