Taylor Guitars based in San Diego, California, are one of the major American makers of acoustic guitars.
Here is their latest model guitar featuring Tasmanian blackwood.
Blackwood tonewood timber retails for >$50,000 per cubic metre sawn, compared with normal furniture grade blackwood that retails for ~$4,000 per cubic metre.
At these prices the tonewood market has the potential to have a significant impact on the commercial future of blackwood.
All we need to do is realise that opportunity.
Help us to realise that future by supporting the Blackwood Growers Cooperative.
