Why Guitar Monkey Wooden Guitar Mechanics Buttons?

Our wooden mechanics buttons are characterized by their elegant look and pleasant feel. Compared to our metal buttons, you also save up to 20% weight with our wooden buttons, which is a great advantage for top-heavy guitars.

We offer our buttons with 3 different insert versions in order to offer a custom-fit attachment for many different mechanics from other manufacturers. You can find the exact dimensions in our technical drawing and the selection of the right insert version for the different manufacturers can be found in the upper drop-down menu.

Here you can find more technical details about our wooden buttons.

Basically, all of our wood comes from India and without exception from certified cultivation. The woods are grown in plantations and monitored and approved by the Indian State Forest Service.

What many people don't know is that there are several hundred types of ebony and rosewood all over the world. Unfortunately, many of the world's ebony and rosewood species, especially African ones, have been considered endangered for many years.

That's why we use tamarind wood (Tamarindus indica), also known as Indian dates, instead of the endangered Indian rosewood (Dalbergia latifolia). The second type of wood that we use is East Indian ebony (Diospyros melanoxylon), which is also not considered endangered.
