Restoration Music builds custom stringed instruments. We can build a guitar of your design and specification or reproduce fine vintage style instruments modeled after C. F.Martin or Gibson guitars. We use only the finest tonewoods:
- Brazilian Rosewood
- East Indian Rosewood
- Honduran Mahogany (figured and plain)
- Figured African Rosewood (Bubinga)
- Acacia Koa
- Madagascar Rosewood
- Peroba Rosa
- Curly and Quilted Red or Big Leaf maple.
- Adirondack Red Spruce (Torrefied)
- Sitka Spruce
- Carpathian Spruce
All instruments are made completely by hand using traditional joinery and techniques. Bindings can be the typical celluloid or woods such as curly maple, snakewood, guaribo, or rosewood.
We use hot hide glue for all joints.
We offer repair services and restoration of fine vintage instruments.
