Style 1 Weissenborn Guitar
Maple Silkwood is a native species to Australia (a close relative of Queensland Maple, a tonewood I've used for many years in both acoustic and electric guitars) and I've had this incredibly figured tonewood air drying in the workshop for a number of years and it's a delight to finally offer some stunning guitars made from this beautiful, striking tonewood.
