To emphasize our commitment to the highest forestry standards all OF our tonewood meets the standards for membership in the Acadian Forest Keepers.
WE OFFER RED SPRUCE AND HEMLOCK TOPS AT VARIOUS GRADES TO MEET YOUR NEEDS. WE ALSO HAVE A SELECTION OF UNIQUE BACK AND SIDE SETS HARVESTED FROM FRIENDS LANDS.
Our excellent quality soundboards for guitar, mandolin, and other stringed instruments are made from 200 – 400 year old trees that are harvested with great care, only winter cut and hauled out with horses so that the natural Acadian Forest remains undisturbed. Our old-growth forest provides growth conditions that yield exceptional wood with the same specific gravity and hardness of the traditional high elevation Appalachian Red Spruce used in the great vintage guitars.
Try some of our beautiful bracewood to compliment your soundboard. We have a range of grades available for you to choose from. Our standard bracewood is 2"w x 1"t x 22"l, perfectly clear with at least 8 grains/inch, and no more than 10 degrees off quarter. Hemlock $7.50/each Red Spruce $9.00/each
