Weekly Roundup / by Tom Sands

It’s August already? We were so busy we didn’t notice. Another jam-packed week here at Tom Sands Guitars.

‘….it’s 138 days til Christmas?’

Most notably we’ve had a massive batch of Mahogany arrive - Cuban, Honduran and African. It’s going to make some glorious necks. There’s also some Koa awaiting a stacked heel glue…

It’s been all hands on deck getting the truss-rod and graphite reinforcement channels routed. We’ve also been making up some new moulds for upcoming projects which we can’t wait to divulge.

We have also found time this week to release one of our favourite SHOP SESSIONS yet - a mesmerising song called ‘Oh’ by Will Killen. He’s definitely one to watch, his writing, playing and personality are all in favour of success. Check it out here, and we’ll be releasing a new track from him soon in line with it’s official release!

We’ve also said goodbye for now to ‘Kealia’, the Model M in Koa and Swiss ‘Moon’ Spruce. She’s gone for a spray of lacquer, along with the other Model M in ‘The Tree’ and Swiss ‘Moon’ Spruce.
