Black Volt Guitars, like our amplifiers, are all made from mostly reclaimed wood dating from the last hundred years honoring the tones found in our favorite guitars from the Golden Age of guitar production, the 1940's to the 1960's.
One of the many benefits of old wood is that it has had time to dry and cure naturally resulting in a more settled and mature tone.
Another benefit is that the wood will not move as the guitar begins it's new life.
It is straight and true and ready for many years of dependable service.
