I need to do a good selection of wood before starting the work to make a guitar. The wood must be dried enough the process takes at least ten years. Then it’s important to do a second selection to obtain the best quality wood.

Top, Back and Sides are very important in the final sound. Besides that it ́s crucial the selection of the inside wood which will be used in harmonius bars.
Each guitar will have different thickness because it depends of the density of the wood. The lacker is relevant to the final sound and it will be done with French polish.
All my guitars are handmade, signatured and numbered.
I make guitars of Palo Santo Brasil, Palo Santo India, Coral, Real Spanish Cypress in sides and back, Ebony to diapason.
German spruce or Canadien cedar in tops and Honduras cedar in neck.
