Every standard Megatar is laminated out of quarter sawn sapele. Sapele is one of the most commonly used guitar woods for a reason, and in our opinion, sapele represents the best balance of weight, tone, workability, stability, appearance, mojo and cost. The best classic Megatars such as the so-called "Maxtapper" and "Toneweaver" instruments were made out of sapele.
In addition there are several options designed to make it easy for players to personalize the look and performance of their Megatars. For more info on neck upgrades, click here.

Below is a sampling of the woods I normally have in stock:
I also have access to a private collection of tone woods gathered over the course of the last 40 years from all around the West Coast by my buddy "Bearman". Lots of burl woods, crotches and figured woods, softwoods and hardwoods. One-of-a-kind and of the finest quality and each piece has a story to go with it. If you like the idea of including a very special piece of wood into your instrument, contact me for details.
Here are a couple places to learn more about the characteristics of the different woods:
