2022 Evan Kingma #20 Cedar Wenge
The last guitar I had built with Wenge was fantastic, where this magnificent example by Evan Kingma exceeds expectations. You can find more about this wood in my Tonewood Discussion
Inspection was more than satisfactory. The guitar itself is wildly resonant and wholly musical. Workmanship stellar. Machines are an excellent choice.
The room was filled with the sound of the guitar and her play is totally accessible, almost effortless. I found her pointed, focused, powerful and nuanced.

Wenge (pronounced WENN-gay) is a relatively unknown wood to most players, and even to most builders. Nevertheless, it’s a superb tonewood with a remarkably clear, ringing taptone that seems to sustain forever. Ervin Somogyi reportedly called wenge “the new Brazilian rosewood”, and that’s not far off.
The result is a guitar with extraordinary responsiveness, volume, and color.
