Carefully hand-picked woods, enormous resounding sustain, and a comfortable neck, makes for a perfect total package that you won't want to stop playing!


    The maple neck of these guitars were crafted from old slow growth timber that rested in the depths of the Great Lakes for approximately 100 years. The cold temperature and low oxygen content of the water preserved the wood in near perfect condition. Most old slow growth wood at the bottom of the Great Lakes was harvested in the late 1800’s from areas in Canada, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan. This wood is scarce today, as it is estimated that 10% to 30% of these logs sank to the bottom of the Great Lakes on the way to port. Once the wood dried, it was roasted to eliminate moisture, resulting in a resonant and stable neck. Our suppliers have gone to great lengths to recover these sunken pieces of North American heritage and history. This wood is an example of our dedication to source the finest, most toneful woods for our customers.
