All Kinkade instruments are only constructed from solid, premium grade timbers
known for their tonality, strength and beauty.
Soundboards are constructed from Sitka Spruce. Other options include European Spruce, Engleman Spruce and occasionally Western Red Cedar.
Materials for backs and sides are mostly Brazilian Mahogany, Indian Rosewood, Walnut or figured Maple/Sycamore. Brazilian Rosewood, Koa, and Tasmanian Blackwood can be used, depending on availability.
Most guitar necks are constructed from Mahogany and have adjustable trussrods, soundhole accessible whenever possible.
A unique feature of Kinkade guitars is their solid wood scratch plate – usually a thin slice of walnut on flat top models, as it is light and durable.
