ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA, January 25, 2018 - The Timeless Collection are limited edition, one-of-a-kind wood string instruments with tops made from 140+-year-old reclaimed European Fir beams pulled from bridges, pubs and barns throughout the U.K. The warm, rich tone produced by this natural aging process falls between redwood and spruce, providing a unique blend of clarity, volume and complexity. With a parlor guitar and three mandolins, the Timeless Parlor, Timeless Celtic, Timeless A-Style and Timeless F-Style, there is a Timeless instrument for every enthusiast. A Mother-of-Pearl "Clou De Lys" overlay graces every Timeless instrument headstock to commemorate this special wood, and each instrument comes with a hardshell case that includes a “cut steel nail” encased in acrylic – nails pulled from the reclaimed wood, proving the age, as cut steel nails fell out of use after 1880.
