I get the parts from trees…

Actually there are a number of retailers that sell guitar wood. mahogany, ebony and spruce. i’m fortunate to have worked for guitar company for many years and I get the lumber I need from them and their sources.

Lovely work, Eric. I built a tenor uke (from a Stuart MacDonald kit) last year as a gift for my son; it turned out pretty well, but it doesn’t have the beautiful wood that yours does.

Have your say...
