Rosettes are a decorative element set into the exterior surface of the guitar, around the sound hole. The rosette has a decorative and artistic purpose together with the headplate and the bridge help to customized the guitar. Rosettes often serves as a luthier’s signature.
The rosette is not only a decorative element, it also reinforces the area from cracking either from dryness or an accidental hit.
Some guitar makers do their own rosettes, however in Maderas Barber we have various and precious rosettes to avoid the time employed on the rosettes making. Our rosettes are pretty and high quality.
