Bridge plate - what's your preferred wood

18 Aug 2014

Posted by Fred in The Wood Shop

I am wondering about what wood to use for my bridge plates.  

 

While maple seems to be the standard, rosewood or any very hard wood seems to have been used.   A friend pointed out that Martin went to Rosewood in the late 60's only to switch back to maple after producing some poor sounding guitars.  Perhaps the issue was more than the bridge plate.  

 

So, I wondering what views are available on the forum.  Thanks for your thoughts and time.

Pink Ivory Guitar Sets

23 Aug 2014

Posted by GOAT GUITARS in Tonewood for Sale
I have 6 sets of Pink Ivory that I'm going to offer for sale, I do have more but they will take me a while longer to get round to :)
 
Sets 1-3 are $1100 sets 4 & 5 are $1050 and set 6 is $1000 this price includes postage and packing to most places (USA, Canada, Europe) anywhere really remote then I will need to adjust this.
 
These sets are advertised else so I will remove them once they are sold.
 
Payment by Paypal only please, no cheques, bank transfers, money orders thanks!
 
Please PM with all queries :)
 
These are the sets the majority will have curl in the backs and all will fit an OM apart from set 6 which would be better suited to a classical.

Set 6) This set would be better suited to a Classical guitar as it has a few knots which are in the pattern shape for an OM. One of the sides goes a little thinner to one end but most of this will be cut out. There are a couple of splits in the backs but these fall out side the OM pattern so will be fine for a Classical!

If you require anymore photo's then please let me know. I will try to get round to the fingerboards, bridges, headplates, binding this week.
