Every guitar has a voice. And that voice comes from the woods that make up the construction of these instruments we love and adore.
Tonewoods are an important decision when choosing an acoustic guitar. There are many design choices when developing the guitar of your dream, but there is probably none more important than the selection of the tone woods.
The sound board creates probably the most important aspect of the construction, while the back and sides give the guitar its character.
