What is tempered wood?

Tempering is a highly scientific drying process that the wood undergoes to make it lighter, stiffer and more stable than the industry standard kiln dried wood. Tempered wood is more resonant and has a longer natural sustain than wood that has not been treated. Click the Tempered Tonewoods logo to read more about the process.

These guitars look cool. Where can I get one?

You can order any Novo model from one of our dealers. We do not sell direct. See the Dealers page for the Novo dealer nearest you. If you are in the Nashville area, you can schedule an appointment to visit our showroom, where we have a number of Novos on display.

We’ve finished prototyping a semi-hollow design called the MIRUS, based on the SERUS body shape. There’s a 24.75″ scale single cutaway design in the queue right behind those, and the first Novo bass is not far behind that.
