Environmental commitment

At Kriz Lenz Custom Guitars, our goal is to make a contribution to the pursuit of environmental sustainability.  

Sustainable production - for our hand selected tone wood, we work with partners in the region and use local woods instead of exotic endangered woods.

We completely refrain from using any chemical and/or toxic wood colors and finishes. We only use natural vegetable oils and waxes (sunflower oil, soybean oil, safflower oil, carnauba and candelilla wax) for all finishes of body and neck of our instruments.
