All of our timbers choose from our owned wood depot which have naturally air dried for 3-5 years or more. Only these kind of wood can guarantee the quality of the guitars. We use wood moisture meter to test the moisture content of lumber, only choose the enough dried wood before processing. The Strict screening process will avoid excessive deformation in the neck due to the changes in the weather or further lead to fret buzzing. In addition, all the wood we used are consistent with your original guitar, not like the other sellers to fake it or use inferior woods even use plywood.
Why We use Wilkinson Hardware?
we strongly recommend the more economical Wilkinson pickups which we have compared with the initial pick-ups, for the reason that cost of the actual pick-ups is hundred dollars. It's only a reproduction, so why not making use of bargain-priced factors? Wilkinson is a suitable Korean pick-up brand name, not as widely recognized as those fame companies, however, quality is guaranteed and the pricing is far lower than those famous brands. Regarding the sound, it really is adequate for your routine exercises!  Anyway, it saves very much for you.
Our default pickups, bridges and hardware are Wilkinson guitar parts.  If Wilkinson products can not reach your level, there are many upgrade options available, please tell us what exactly you need, no mater pickups or hardwares or bridge, we will try our best to meet your requirements.
