A bridge is a device for supporting the strings on a stringed instrument. It transmits the vibration of those strings to the  soundboard in order to transfer the sound to the surrounding air.  Bridges are most commonly a single piece of wood that fits between the strings and the surface of the soundboard.  We carry several bridge blanks that could be used for guitars, mandolins and violins.

  • Katalox

    (Swartzia spp. (S. cubensis))


    Katalox is an exotic wood that is native to Central America. It is far superior in strength to either Teak or Hard maple. Strength qualities in compression parallel to grain are exceptionally high. It is very hard - much harder than White oak, Hard maple, or Teak. The wood is exceptionally heavy. It weighs much more than Hard maple or Teak in the green or seasoned condition. The wood is very dense.

  • Granadillo

    (Platymiscium spp.)

    Granadillo is a relatively new wood to American guitar making but is fairly common in South America. It is non-porous, straight grained to interlocked, very dense,  with a medium to fine texture, and has a ringing, bright tap tone. It works easily but can dull tools a bit, has a medium to fine texture, and finishes well with a high natural luster. The reddish brown color will darken to
    a brick color over time much like Honduran Rosewood.

  • Ziricote
    (Cordia dodecandra)

    Ziricote is an exotic wood native to the Central American countries of Belize, Guatemala, and Mexico. 

    The feel is buttery smooth and slick. This dark gray to brown to black wood is similar to Ebony in weight and density. It is a hard, dense wood, with a medium texture. The density translates to great sustain with a nice, medium tone. The color ranges from reddish brown to dark brown, sometimes with either a green or purple hue, with unusual black streaks. Some pieces have gorgeous striping and "spider web" grain patterns or “landscape” grain figure. Quartersawn surfaces can also have ray flakes similar in appearance to those found on quartersawn Hard Maple. The pale yellowish sapwood is sometimes incorporated into designs for aesthetic effect, or to cut down on wastage. It works very nicely and finishes well to a high luster.
