Welcome to Alaska Specialty Woods

Our Specialty is Sitka Spruce
We know Sitka Spruce
We know Grade
We know Tonewood

There’s no better feeling than knowing when you purchase guitar tonewood or other luthier supplies that you’re helping to save the environment. At Alaska Specialty Woods we pride ourselves in using methods that do not harm the forest we get our Sitka Spruce comes from.

Some of our methods include exploring hundreds of square miles of the forest to locate dead and already fallen trees to harvest for our tonewood; from there we go through all of the specifications required to purchase these trees from the USDA Forest Service.

Alaska Specialty Woods offers guitar tonewood that is both figured and non-figured, as well as a variety of other luthier supplies to complete your instruments. As tonewood manufacturers in Alaska, there’s no comparison to the customer service that we provide at Alaska Specialty Woods; we care about you and instrument just as much as we care about preserving the environment around us. Call Alaska Specialty Woods today for guitar tonewood and other luthier supplies made from the finest Sitka Spruce available in Alaska.

There is no telling. The packages will most likely arrive in your country within a week to 10 days, but then it is up to the customs office/er as to when it will be released for delivery.
I have known packages to UK, CZ, GR, AU delivered in as little as 2 weeks, but as long as 4-5.

This is how packages are handled...
When I ship your order, an email post is auto generated and sent to the email address you provide.
So if you get that post, your order has been packaged and shipped.
Craig, Alaska is on an island. All mail comes and goes via float plane.
If weather is bad, planes don't fly and mail doesn't move.
We have experienced times when planes are grounded for a week due to fog and or snow [not very often though].
Once the shipment has left here , it is sorted in Ketchikan, Alaska. Surface mail will go via barge to Seattle and trucked to wherever from there.
Priority and Express mail is loaded onto Alaska Airlines jets, either north to Anchorage or south to Seattle and goes via air to wherever.
