•  Western Red Cedar Top Woods - A true performer for those with a lighter touch, cedar tops yield extra warmth and pair nicely with mahogany and rosewood.
•  Tropical Mahogany Body Wood - A midrange powerhouse. Mahogany is prized for balance and articulation, making it one of the best all-around tonewoods there is.
