Walnut Guitar Drop Top (BG51)

$95.00

Claro Walnut is an exceptional and unique wood for luthiers to use in building guitars and ukuleles.  We started reclaiming and using Claro Walnut wood in 1970’s.  The wood has unmatched qualities that will make great acoustic or electric instruments. We personally recover trees that have become unproductive in the orchards of the San Joaquin Valley.  When a tree becomes unproductive it is removed and a young tree is replanted making this Walnut a very eco-friendly and sustainable guitar wood.  The trunks range in size from small to large.  These trees have a Claro Walnut rootstock and is grafted to an English Walnut fruiting wood.  The graft line between the two varieties can be very unique.  We air dry our Claro Walnut wood for at least three years.   

Claro Walnut is a great tone wood for electric guitar top.  This piece showcases excellent figure, color, and contrast.

There are two book matched piece 0.29 x 6 to 8 1/2 x 22 1/2".  There are small bark inclusions.

Photos are taken two ways.  The first to show what the finished instrument will look like and then dry to show what the wood will look like when it arrives.
