A word about grades: Master grade is the best of the best! Tighter grain, Excellent color &  better color match backs to sides.  Our A grade is what you would normally see on a standard production model guitar These are well quartered with good color match backs to sides . B grade will have  wide grain, or some defect such as knots less color match back to side, or  may be slightly warped.

"I just placed an order for top, back & sides, fretboard. I'm sending a pic of the guitar I just finished for a guy in Mass. It's for his son who graduates Dec. 20th. Top, back and sides, fretboard were from you guys. Great stuff, that's why I bought more. Unbeatable prices too. Thanks."

Indian Rosewood B grade Back & Sides  Classical size Guitar Set

Dalbergia Latifolia

B grade is either very wide grain and less color/grain match back to sides or if tight grain and good color. B grade includes a wide variety of  color and grain. If there are no defects they probably will have wider grain spacing less interesting color. Some may be in a master grade category but will have defects such as knots, wormholes inside a normal classical size pattern. These may work for smaller instruments. If you are making Ukulele, Mandolin or small parlor guitars.

These sets may or may not be seasoned for years as our regular sets.

 

B grade currently out of stock. Please check back!

E-28 Special Rose Back & Side Set

This set has unusual color. It is D size. The sides had some slight mineral I wiped one side a little  with lacquer thinner and the color from the  rosewood made the mineral disappear. This would have normally been an a grade set.

You are buying this exact set!!

.....I just received shipment of the rosewood guitar set and I'm happy to say that it all looks great!   After having checked out most of the suppliers of wood, I think your stuff is an excellent value and will make up into a really beautiful instrument...I'm doing a  DeTorres reproduction as my first attempt, and I think the grain of this wood against the red cedar top wood I'm using will be perfect for the traditional old Spanish look......Also, thanks for shipping so quickly.  You have a satisfied customer here, and you will be hearing from me for future needs......

Indian Cedar Back & Sides

D size Guitar Sets

Like Hondo but much lighter!

Only 9 or 10 sets available!!

This is very light wood. It looks like a mahogany when it is finished but is much lighter in weight.

We bought 10 or 12 sets of these years ago. I built one instrument out of it, sort of going for an ultralight model. It turned out very nice and was sold to a player who loved it. I thought I might build more of these so I have kept these all this time but have decided to sell these. So while they last!!
