New, Shopworn, and Used Guitars

We do not currently have any new guitars in stock.
Here are shopworn and used Garnut Guitars (and the builder's favorite Garnut Guitars). If you see something you like,
please inquire at GarnutGuitars@gmail.com


Garnut Guitars backs, sides, tops, necks, fretboards, and bridges are handmade/handcrafted from solid wood. Backs & sides are made from various varieties of rosewood (Brazilian, Madagascar, Amazon, Panama, Honduran, Cocobolo) as well as mahogany, maple, Malaysian blackwood, bloodwood, and other popular tonewoods. Tops and internal bracing are made from different varieties of spruce (including Adirondack, European, Engelmann, Sitka). Necks are ordinarily carved from a single piece of mahogany. Fretboards and bridges are ebony. Bindings, purfling, and rosettes are usually made from wood (such as maple, ebony, koa, rosewood), but may also be made from wood fiber, ivoroid, or faux tortoise. Standard tuners are Grover StaTite vintage style.

Climate Change and Lightly-built Wood Instruments
Garnut guitars are made with light spruce bracing in a very dry climate, in a shop environment that is humidified to about 30% year-round. If a guitar is shipped to a more humid climate it must initially be kept in a dehumidifed environment, then gradually introduced to the local climate to avoid the wood swelling, warping, etc. If the guitar is shipped to a climate that is drier than 30%, the guitar must be kept in a humidified environment until it adjusts to the local humidity to avoid cracking and related problems.
