Quarter sawing


Selected logs are first ripped so the fibres run continuously along each piece of wood. This results in many “pie pieces”, which are then quarter-sawn to ensure that each piece of wood that goes into your Pellerin guitar will have a maximum of rigidity and stability. This method of sawing wood leads to considerable waste (and is thus more expensive), but is essential for the durability of the instrument. This is the only way to obtain pieces of wood that remain more stable over time and have a maximum of rigidity.
