While preferring aged mahogany for tonewoods, Keith has been using macassar ebony for its richness and similarity to Brazilian rosewood. The tops vary, but most are Sitka spruce.

About the Kinscherff Custom 12: Jamie Kinscherff used Adirondack braces that have been strengthened by utilizing beam deflection (holes drilled into the braces) which lighten and strengthen the braces. This technique is especially useful for 12 strings because there is so much tension on the top and tendency over the years for the bridge to be pulled up. The Adirondack is a great choice for extra strong support.
