All Tarrant Guitars are custom made from scratch using only the best materials available. All solid tonewood is used instead of vaneers like in most lower range factory guitars, this means your guitar's sound will improve with age, as it opens up. Timber Bindings are used instead of plastic, as well as bone for the nut and saddle. Nitrocellulose lacquer is used for the finish in either high gloss or satin.
The most common styles of 6, 8 and 12 string shapes that Tarrant Guitars offer are:
Jumbo (similar to Gibson J 200)
Orchestral Model ( similar to Martin O.M)
L-00 ( similar to Gibson L-00)
000 (similar to Martin 000)
3/4 small body (similar to Mini Martin)

There are also many pickup / preamp options to choose from dependent on what the instrument is, and what its going to be plugged into. K & K, Schatten and Fishman are most commonly used in Tarrant Guitars. It is encouraged for the customer to have input before and during the building process as there "dream" guitar is turning into reality.
