The guitar was crafted from Brazilian rosewood, book matched Sitka spruce with heavy "bearclaw" figuring, Adirondack red spruce and African ebony
. The ebony was inlaid with a floral pattern of abalone bordered in mother-of-pearl and used for the guitar's bridge, finger-board and pickguard.
The few pieces of furniture consist of tall backed chairs, benches, tables and counters, all made of African ebony
. (Armani, who bought a licensed supply, were persuaded by Silvestrin to treasure the inevitable cracking.) Furniture and brass planes are dark counterpoints in the symphony of pale stone.
