Body Wood (top, back & sides)
Mahogany neck/Ebony fretboard & bridgetie block
The traditional choice for necks is Mahogany, which we have used since we began.
Our standard fretboard has been Ebony. It has been the proven choice for fretboards due to its density (stiffness), durability (resistance to wear) and color (the near black color doesn't show marks).
Our standard bridge has been Rosewood or Ebony (we are now just using Ebony). They are the proven choice for bridges due to their density.
|Cascade Series Bundle
PO Cedar neck/Maple fretboard & bridgetie block
We are now offering (no additional cost) a Port Orford Cedar (POC) neck, also reinforced with a carbon fiber rod. It is also lighter weight, and it is a softer wood that can be scarred more easily.
Bird's Eye Maple is our alternative offering for fretboards. It is quite dense and durable, and has been used successfully on many of Fender's electric guitars for years.
Maple is the bridge we use in our Cascade Series bundle. It is quite dense and we believe will perform very well as a bridge.

This pickup does an excellent job of representing the acoustics of the instrument. In addition, it has no on-board electronics so it is lightweight and very durable. The transducers are two discs that mount inside the body under the bridge plate.
