The online shop is intended for the UK mainland only.

Now that the UK is no longer part of Europe the exporting of many of our products has become infinitely more complicated with many species requiring CITES export and Import documentation which would incur delays and considerable additional expense to the customer.
This together with exceptionally high increased carriage costs from our couriers
means we are unable to ship internationally at this time.
Sorry for any inconvenience
Best regards Steve Keys.

Suppliers of Tonewoods for Luthiers UK Based .

We are a family company that has been trading in Luthiers supplies in the UK for many years, dealing mainly in the wholesale market. about 20 years ago we finally decided to offer our Tonewood stocks directly to Luthiers supplies & guitar repair supplies uk
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!

Over many years of importing hardwoods for tonewoods and our inlay banding company, we have built up an extensive network of contacts around the world, and are able to secure some of the finest Tonewoods for Luthiers, much of which is cut in house.

So whether you are a master luthier, or a guitarist, wishing to build or repair your own guitar, we can offer you some of the finest ACOUSTIC, CLASSICAL AND ELECTRIC TONEWOODS available today.

Acclimatising your tonewood to your workshop.

We would strongly recommend that all tonewoods be allowed to fully acclimatise to your workshop before undertaking any work.
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.
