Routing mahogany

Built entirely from Sipo Mahogany, the wood grain is taken into account when determining the direction of neck and body. Appearances do matter... As well as stability...

An oil finish is not only pleasant to the touch when playing, it also makes for freer resonance of frequencies in the wood.

Mahogany body with oil finish

Applying the proper oils combined with the appropriate procedure brings out the grain nicely.
