Suppliers of Tonewoods for Luthiers UK Based .
At that time our name may have be unfamiliar in the world of luthier supplies, aside from the other Luthiers Supplies UK & Tonewood stockists ,the larger guitar factories and guitar shops with a thriving repair department, despite this our tonewoods would have probably found their way onto many of the Instruments that had left your workshop during those years.
Now, we are delighted to say that our retail profile has risen hugely around the world.
We continue to supply the Trade as well as professional and amateur luthiers & Repairs in the UK and around the world!

Acclimatising your tonewood to your workshop.
Items should be stored in stick then strapped or weighted.
Wherever possible all our tonewoods like Rosewoods, Ebony, Mahogany etc have been kiln dried before putting into stock.
Kilning is not always possible due to the nature of the species as it may cause excessive cracking or discolouration, in which case it will be air dried and will have a slightly higher moisture content.
