“Selection of the very best tonewood is where the joy in building each guitar begins.” – Jay
At Lichty Guitars, when we say custom guitar, we mean a guitar that is built just for you. That process begins by choosing the guitar model and the specific set of guitar tonewood that you’d like your instrument to be built from. Different woods contribute to different tones, along with the type of soundboard, bracing, and many other factors. We have on hand, at all times, a wide selection of premium exotic and domestic guitar tonewoods.
Two things to keep in mind regarding guitar tonewoods:
- Putting a finish on wood transforms its color and warmth. Images of unfinished wood require a bit of imagination to picture the vibrancy of the finished instrument.
- If you do not see what you are looking for, we can contact our premium suppliers and round up most anything.
