Luthier Acoustic guitar handcrafted by Ian Noyce, based in Mount Clear, Australia
In recent years I’ve mostly used Blackwood for the backs and sides of acoustics because I find this timber provides a balance of the qualities found in Rosewood, Mahogany and Maple guitars.
Here’s an attempt to put those qualities into words:
Mahogany – Light but strong, loud and clear, bright treble compact mids.
Rosewood – Resonant, deep warm bass with a sweet, light treble.
Blackwood – Like Koa, slightly less bassy than Rosewood, slightly less trebly than Mahogany, beautifully balanced, clear tone.
Medium size body:
European Alpine Spruce top.
Fiddleback Blackwood back and sides.
640mm. scale 21 fret Ebony fingerboard.
Pearl Noyce headstock logo.
6mm. M.O.P. Fingerboard Dots.
Custom options are available. eg. Mahogany, Rosewood or Maple back and sides.
Three piece mahogany neck laminate with 60-90 degree grain angle to fingerboard for optimum stiffness/stability.
Width at Nut: 43mm
Depth at nut: 21mm. Width at 12th. fret: 54mm. Depth at 12th. fret: 24mm.
Dual 3mm x 9.5mm carbon fibre rigidity bars either side of truss rod.
Finger board Curvature:
Variable,225mm – 300mm. radius.
Compound curve, 5mm. dia. semi bright steel, Hex Brass nut with 3mm Allen key wrench or 8mm./5/16″ socket wrench adjusted at body end.
Built for D’Addario EJ16 strings: .012-.054
