|EARNEST INSTRUMENTS are created for musicians who require functional,
distinctive, high quality tools for making music. These are not your garden
variety music store axes, but uncommon musical instruments designed to meet
the needs of innovative players looking for something a little different.
Rather than build reproductions of standard manufactured items, EARNEST
combines time-tested styles and designs to create unique, original instruments
with a classic appearance. Every effort is made to build the finest sounding
and playing instruments. Their expense results from the quality of the
materials and workmanship rather than unnecessary detail or excessive
ornamentation. Materials are chosen for utility, tone, and appearance.
Domestic and lesser known exotic tonewoods are favored over rare, overpriced,
and often endangered species. Natural and manufactured materials are combined
with appropriate adhesives and fasteners, at optimum humidity, to insure the
stability and durability of the instruments. Earnest Instruments are
built for a lifetime of music making!|
