"I have ordered a half-dozen sets of Robert's various tonewoods, and have been surprised each time by the careful hand-selection and quality of sets he manages to supply. Since building my first guitar from Tasmanian wood, Robert has treated me as an old friend, always looking for something special for my next one. I have tried King Billy and huon pine tops, with terrific sounding results. The backs seem to be even more beautiful with each order - make sure you ask him for whatever he has just off the saw!
Shipping to the USA has been fast and the wood arrives in heavily wrapped and padded packaging. There's always been a extra amount of wood to use from the generous cuts of the billets, or something for a rosette or headstock as well.
I have been delighted to try so many new Tasmanian woods for everything from necks, to bindings to tops. Each guitar has a markedly different and unique voice from the wood combinations, and the look under finish is just stunning.
I'll never have better, more personal customer service from another wood supplier, and I'll be coming back to Tasmanian Tonewoods for as long as I build!"
