This OM model guitar is made with a carpathian spruce top from you, and sounds (in my humble opinion) very, very good. I appreciate the high level of service from your company, and the high quality of the woods delivered. Keep up the good work. Best wishes, Ragnar

Carpathian Tonewoods was easy to deal with. Responsive to requests for photos and pricing and quick to ship once payment was made. The wood I received was spectacular. I had been looking for new sources of maple for my arch top guitars as north American maples seemed to be getting heavier and heavier. The Maple I got from Catalin was beautiful and had a great strength to weight ratio. Good specific gravity and was a joy to work. I will be buying from them again

Maple back and sides are beautiful, I am very happy with it. It was easy to choose my favorit pieces of tops, backs and sides from your web pages. The service was good, well packaged and quick delivery.

I like to use Catalin's tonewood. Specially the maple tonewood is so nice as well as its price. When I visited his place, I've found stored tonewoods that naturally seasoning. The seasoning method is very important for the sound of instrument. I am satisfied with the business with Catalin

  1. I really can’t fault the quality of service or the speed with which my order was dispatched. The UK having left the EU, I expected some delay but if there were any, it was minimal. The wood quality was excellent and those generous people at Carpathian Tonewoods sent not only better grades than requested but extra pieces too so I could not be happier. The backs and tops were accurately partially sawn making final splitting easy. As a new customer I was treated extremely well by very helpful staff and ownership and they will be my first port of call when I need to pre-order.
    Finally, their prices are extremely competitive so as I started out saying, I really can’t find fault. Thank you, Carpathian Tonewoods.

  11. The website is easy to navigate and the shipping quote is right there so you get no surprises. The service is always first class and the shipping is lightning fast. Catalin is always ready to help out. When I need wood, this is my first choice.

  12. I think all of your services have been first class.

  13. Easy to navigate site, prompt notifications and delivery

  14. it was my first time I purchased wood from Europe and was more of a test to see how it would go sending all the way to Australia and It all went to plan, no problems at all. At first I wasn’t happy with the first courier they use, a quick email and they changed the courier so that was great news. As far as the product, it looks and feels good but the true test will be when it’s on a guitar, until then I recommend the purchasing from Carpathian and they do have good range tops. Regards
