UPGRADE TO AUSTRIAN RED SPRUCE - $250 MSRP

August 7, 2015

Jean Larrivée has been busy collecting Austrian Red spruce "Moonwood", originally found in the Black Forest. Using the exacting methods of harvest adopted by Stradivarius, Moonwood is a century-old tradition of falling a specific tree within a list of very specific parameters. This includes falling time in relevance to moon phase, altitude of tree, peak age/size of tree, and finally "forest stabilization". The result is a much stiffer fiber that delivers incredibly spectacular tone. Jean has officially released his matured supply and is now offering these soundboards as a custom upgrade on all acoustics at a $250 MSRP. Talk to your dealer today while supplies last.
