Rosewoods & Ebony are the accepted standard on quality concert guitars; 
Using woods such as Walnut, Cherry & Yew for ribs, backs & bindings give an English 
identity to the instrument without detracting too much from tradition.  



Finest Spruce remains the first choice for                                                           Rosettes & Bindings are all Handmade
soundboards: domed ‘solera’ strutting 
& open harmonic bars are normal features.
