      It appears I missed the memo on “The Tree”. What is the back story on “The Tree”? I’ve been reading about guitars made from it and I have seen pictures but when I tried to find out about “the Tree” I haven’t been able to find anything.

      My appreciation in advance, thanks

      This will lead you to MANY more  articles about The Tree”.

      You will learn that Richard Hoover was one of the first luthiers to build with that wood.

      I am the proud owner of the 4th guitar that Richard built using “the Tree”……..It is signed by Richard and is truly an exceptional guitar.
