You've found or stumbled across Notable Woods. We have been been supplying musical instrument tonewood to luthiers and factories since 1999. We specialize in top, back and side sets for guitar, ukulele, mandolin, electric, bass, Weissenborn and other stringed instruments.

About Us...In A Nutshell

We source instrument-grade logs and lumber from sustainable or salvage sources, air dry the lumber a minimum of two years, carefully resaw it into thin plates, grade it, store it in our wood room kept at 45–50% relative humidity, and, ultimately, ship it to luthiers worldwide. Find out more at our shop tour page.
