*Solid Moon Spruce (aka European Alpine Spruce):  The spruce used on these instruments is extremely rare and special. The spruce comes from a very specific alpine region in Austria which has been producing the world’s finest spruce for over 200 years. This specific variety is harvested using a centuries old technique which makes it ideal for musical instrument. Generations have referred to this spruce as “Moonwood”. What it means is that the wood is only harvested during a very small window of time each year (Originally under a specific Zodiac Sign), and during this time the tree has the least amount of movement and tension. Once the tree is felled it remains on the forest floor for months naturally drying and curing in the alpine climate. Because these trees come from a region at such high elevation, the trees are very small in diameter ranging from 50-100cm in diameter meaning that only a limited number of soundboards are available each year. The wood is white, with striking clarity and thin beautiful grain lines. Soundboards average 20+ grain lines per inch and have a stunning shimmer. These soundboards are extremely stiff and light, having the highest stiffness-to-weight ratio out of all the guitar building spruces.

*Bhilwara is a tropical wood from India and is in the Rosewood family.  Bhilwara has the warmth of rosewood and the bright articulation of mahogany.
