“Figured poplar is a kind of wood I love to work with. It’s irreverent and brash for the amount of reading options it gives you as soon as you get a board from it. The spectacular fibre textures allow for a multitude of finishes and interpretations. I also love it for the wonderful sound response and the harmonic texture it always manages to produce. Plus, why not exploit its cheeky irreverence to its fullest to make a unique classic jazz instrument? Why not?”… Let’s Play
