Client Appraisal & Gallery


"Hi Bentley,
am sharing some photos, have just finished this build using timbers purchased from you.  It's a commission build using all tasmanian timbers, tas blackwood, celery-top, tas myrtle and huon pine.  I had the myrtle and huon in stock, the back and sides are from you and the rest I shopped around for.  My conclusion is that you are the best supplier for tasmanian tonewoods, and will be using you in the future !
Thanks heaps, Alex."

"Hello Bentley,
I am very happy with the last shipment.
I have used timber from 3 other suppliers in the past, mostly ok, but I am extremely happy with the quality of your product and service. Easy to work with and has great sound.
So I will dealing with you from now on." - A. Blackstock

"I just went through the wood you sent me with my last order. Again.
First of all, I am pleased with the quality, but since you know your stuff, you probably know that. The photos on your homepage are trustworthy as well. Since you cut the sets for Weissenborn guitar really generously, I got the top and back for one smaller steel string guitar (Weissenborn Style C) out of it. Thanks for the added goodies as well!
I will definitely order from your shop again and recommend your service!
Best wishes"- T.S. Lietz

"I used to use Koa all the time, but now I like the Tasmanian Blackwood better. This is just my opinion but I think Tasmanian Blackwood simply sounds better." - HAYASHI Guitars

“Beautiful, clear and compelling tone, good consistent dynamic range and seamless response. Truly exceptional ergonomics … too easy to play! A fantastic, versatile bass” – Or Baraket
“Very easy to play. Lovely upper register G string, with a refined sound, excellent projection and good balance overall across the strings … the solo quality is striking. Although delicate, the sound has wonderful bottom to reinforce it.” – John Clayton
