Luthiers Connection

For over 30 years Bryan’s offered his services to current enrolled Galloup School students and graduates alike. Today the Galloup Team has expanded its selection offering a variety of specialty items including custom produced parts, jigs, fixtures and Bryan’s Sonically Rated tone woods for those wanting guaranteed excellence in their musical instrument building materials.

Tonewoods

Backs and Sides

Brazilian Rosewood (Delbergia Nigra)

Sets are listed based on common industry standard models avoiding cracks, repairs and wormholes when possible. If sides are irregular, the available dimensions should support the chosen model. If makers are willing to deal with small issues, many of the OM, 0 and 00 classed sets will make D sized guitars.

As of August 12th, 2020, Galloup Guitars received a Master File issued Department of the Interior and Fish and Wildlife Services for all of our currently owned Brazilian Rosewood (Delbergia Nigra). For a processing fee of $175, legal documentation can be obtained with an approximate wait-time of 90 days.

Sound Boards

Bryan’s sonically rated tone wood system was developed through decades of testing and application that provides a reliable marker so Luthiers can control and push the parameters of their building materials.

The data that generates our sonic ratings is generated by our Instrument Making Software that ties the ratings to solid time tested Lutherie techniques. Furthermore this system provides our “Application Value” that matches the sound boards to players preferences and a “Stiffness Value” for accurately thinning sound boards.
