Acoustic Wood Selection and Voicing
At this initial stage we review the specs of the guitar that has been ordered, taking into account each custom option and wood preference. Top, back and side woods are then selected from our acclimating room and tested for their density, flexibility and responsiveness. Each piece is selected as part of a whole, with the aesthetics and tonal character of the model that has been ordered defining the wood that is selected.
Each acoustic guitar top is hand voiced to bring out its best qualities and to create maximum responsiveness. There is no set thickness that tops are carved to, rather each one is treated as the individual that it is and adjustments are made to fully realize the tonal potential of that particular set of wood.
