Aged Tone Wood

#DidYouKnow that there’s an instrument in our showroom who’s woods have been naturally seasoned for over 50 years?

You can read all about it here (and trust us, the pictures do not do this stunning instrument justice). The (very) well aged Madagascan Rosewood is considered so precious by the luthier that it has its own locked seasoning room which it shares with other, similarly precious, aged tone woods.

Sculpted into this stunning guitar by 3rd generation Spanish luthier Ricardo Sanchis Carpio, this beautiful instrument captures the resonant bass notes typical of rosewood whilst delivering sustained treble too. And, amazingly, with a price tag of under £5k 😱

Father’s Day reminder

With #FatherDay on the horizon we thought we’d remind you of a few things:

  • there are alternative postage options to our usual first class signed for; just give us a call and we’ll sort it out for you
  • postage is disproportionate when ordering just one small item. Consider clubbing together with others or buying for several occasions (birthday, Christmas, etc.) in one go. We can pack a lot of small giftware into that box for the same p&p
  • friend pick ups. We are happy for a friend to collect your order if you can’t.
  • consider shopping in person. You’re more than welcome to pop into The Old Dairy to browse and we open evenings and weekends by appointment.
