Tui model. No 105. 100% NZ native woods. 12 fret.


This is a very good sounding Guitar. Loud and powerfull.  Testament to what quality tone woods bring.

Top and back wood was dug out of a swamp at the top of the South Island some 40yrs ago.It was dated  at 2000 plus years old. The type is unkown but going by the grain my quess it is Matai. Will leave it unknown.


I purchased some of this swamp wood 20 yrs ago, had enough for around 10 instruments Guitars and Ukes. They all turned out great.Wish I had more of this lovely wood.
