SUPERNATURAL series - the sound of a new era!
harmonize humans and nature is the most important challenge
of this century.....
We are releasing the new SUPERNATURAL series in an effort
to replace the use of tropical woods for local varieties
grown in sustainably managed forrests. SUPERNATURAL
instruments are built without any tropical wood. We
just take wood of our own climate zone. And they are
built without Nitrozellulose lacquer.
first important milestone some years ago was finding
a light body wood from the Swiss Alps called AngelPine;
this wood is optimally qualified for building guitars,
replaces Swamp Ash and it is still our most commonly
used wood for guitar bodies because of its excellent
I had to find a substitute for Rosewood and found
it in the least expected place: our own local gardens.
Necks made of Walnut or Pear, Walnut, Plum or Apple
fretboards - Europe can look back on a long and
very successful history of manufacturing musical
instruments, all this without using any tropical
wood whatsoever. After all the best option seemed
to be to go back to our own roots!
of course there are many other environmental topics.
was the next "holy guitar player's cow".
Intensive research work led us toa finish with really
equal sound charcteristics, but with a lower environmental
impact: SatinSilk, a special eco-friendly
hard wax oil
course there is still much room for improvement and our
goal for the coming SUPERNATURALs is producing all their
hardware without electro plaiting; also all knobs and
pickguards aso. shall be produced without mineral oil.
As you can see there’s plenty to do, but we love
this and are happy to invest out time in figuring out
ways to accommodate our instruments to the reality and
circumstances of the world of today, without losing any
of the crispness and quality of our sound. Join us in
the sound of a new era!
