Today, there is a good amount of European spruce available as well as Adirondack spruce which is available again. Brazilian rosewood is obtainable — if you can afford the high price. Mahogany is still a great sounding material, as are many of the other hardwoods that modern luthiers are using.
I am enjoying watching these modern day masterpieces being made and helping that to happen whenever possible. The ultimate goal of the Hudson River Guitar Company is to get performance quality instruments into the hands of players who can truly appreciate them. Every time someone chooses one of these “golden age of luthiers” instruments, chances are another will be made and begin its journey into old age, and that makes us happy.
