Craftsmanship

Natural woodworking

Vacuum pressing & natural wood drying combined technology gives you a more solid sound. After the glue penetrates the pores of the wood sufficiently, it is bonded by slowly applying pressure to increase vibration and durability.

※ Although heat-drying and hot-press methods expedite the building process, they cause the adhesives to harden, interfering with the wood’s natural resonant qualities.

Neck

Solid without distortion

The Indonesian mahogany neck is built out of three-stage drying to minimize distortion. It has a standard U-type profile that players prefer.

Wood drying

Three-stage drying

The wood is dried by natural, thermal and high frequency vacuum drying. In the case of high-frequency vacuum drying, moisture is removed from the inside of the wood, so there is little splitting or distortion coming from drying.

※ Only carefully selected timber that is well dried and seasoned is used.
