The Woodbin

I have been collecting seasoned wood species for many years now. The following list itemizes some of those species that I presently have in stock, and some others that are readily available through known sources. Being able to offer domestic and "non-traditional" tonewoods for use in guitar construction is not only a responsible approach, but also exciting and enlightening! Test results on these species and many others have been substantiated, and many other species have yielded very promising results.
