Our unique Japanese Shou Sugi Ban -charred cedar finish.
This technique became popular in Japan about 300 years ago.
It was used to preserve wood and make it weatherproof.
The technique — which involves charring a wood surface to render it a deep charcoal-black, clean it and apply an oil finish.
There are two main reasons we apply this beautiful technique on our Thunder Child custom guitar.
The first one is to make our guitars super lightweight.
There are no extra coats and added weight. On top of that, we keep our thin hollow body guitar tops super responsive.
