Re: Archtop festival

If anyone from this group is able to go, Victor Baker-VB Guitars offered to show off some of our product and sell it there. I asked Vic what he suggested and how much. He said the "Good Stuff"!, and whatever I wanted to send. So I sent 1 box of 10 sets for 17/18" archtop guitar. All Sitka Spruce, a ...

Re: Savings up to 63% and a free T

And this is in addition to quantity discounts that are available to all but premium figured ...

MusicWood Documentary

I stumbled across this today after doing a search about something else. I had forgotten about it.... Anyway, I believe it was in 2008 when a small film crew and producer of "MusicWood" was on POW Island and came to our humble shop. I spent 1/2 day with them showing them all the different soundboard ...

Re: Torrified Sitka from ASW's salvaged Old Growth Timber

It doesn’t surprise me too much that pretty sold before tone. Though all are/were good for tone, some definitely better than others. I conclude that this was a good thing to do, for us and customers. If anyone would like the 2 set- sets produced and offered again, we could do this. 8 set batches wor...

Trent you don’t see them? I have never used the “private” setting before. I can see them when logged in, so I assumed anyone logged in could.. Maybe only admins. Me and my web master? I guess I’ll go make the public. And ask troy about it tomorrow for the next time. Check in 5 minutes.

Re: Torrified Sitka from ASW's salvaged Old Growth Timber

I spose it's not often, if ever, someone building instruments has had opportunity to get a 2 set lot like these, of sequentially cut sets; one torrefied and one not, to do experimentation with. We already knew the reduction in weight/density. So Our experiment was most focused on the aesthetics and ...

I am going to get right on thicknessing and trimming these 16 sets of cooked/un-cooked sets to all the same dimensions, and record the weights. The post these sets in our online store as 2 set- sets. The uncooked and cooked sequentially cut sets. Each priced per 2 set lot by grade and sort. They wil...

Re: Sitka Spruce FLASH sale

We are out of the original bunch of tops that prompted this sale. We will still honor the coupon to any orders to this product/grade, but will go through inventory in the stacks to glean those nice ones with "the Flash". I know there are more there, and not hard to find.. A great top for $21/set!

I wanted to share this with everyone here since we launched this special earlier in the week. But being way off the grid enjoyed by our neighbors in the lower 48 states technology in and out of Alaska, at least for us, seems to give us as much problem as shipping costs.
