If you want the next level up from our engraved guitar phone cases, then you will love our inlaid guitar phones cases, which have amazing contrast and detail since we are using two different woods.
We make these cases by laser engraving your favorite guitar into either Golden Koa or AAA Curly Hawaiian Koa wood. Next, we dye the guitar with India Ink to bring out all of the fine details of the design. We then inlay that guitar into another wood of your choice, ranging from Black Ebony to Indian Rosewood. Finally, we reseal the entire case with a final topcoat.
The reason that we are offering two types of Koa is that the Golden Koa at this scale looks eerily similar to sitka spruce, so it is a dead ringer for some acoustic instruments. But we also can't say enough things about our AAA Curly Koa. This wood is insane with amazing curl. So we are also offering the guitars in this amazing wood too. We couldn't decide which we like the best, so we thought we would let you decide.
Like all Thalia products, these cases come with our Lifetime Guarantee so buy with confidence.
All Thalia Cases are proudly made by hand in California by our talented team of inlay artists who have been crafting fine wood & shell inlays for the guitar market since 2014. Thank you for supporting us in our pursuit of fine craftsmanship and the love of guitar!
All Hawaiian Koa products made by Thalia come with our Hawaiian Koa Reforestation Commitment. $5 from the sale of each Capo or Phone Case goes directly towards planting and maintaining new Koa trees in Hawaii.
While all of the woods and shell on our site are sourced from ethical vendors who have sustainability policies in place, we want to go further. For Hawaiian Koa we are taking a more active position by directly sourcing our wood in Hawaii, ensuring chain of custody of the salvaged logs. These logs are then sliced into veneer per our specifications. Next, we are actively involved in the planting and maintaining of new royal koa trees in Hawaii on the same islands where our wood originates. This full circle approach ensures that we will be able to achieve our goal of being a significant participant in the reforestation of Hawaii while also producing 100 times more koa wood for the musical instrument industry than we consume over the next decade.
