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
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.
