The Woods
Concert Deluxe back: Flame maple
The choice and the quality of the wood is essential to a guitar's sound and performance. Ole Kehlet experiments and explores different wood materials, using such types as quilted bird's eye maple (picture below), Brazilian rosewood, flame maple (picture above), German spruce, sitka spruce, cedar wood, African ebony hard wood (picture to the right) etc.
Folk Vintage back: Quilted bird's eye maple

All Kehlet Guitars feature tops of either German spruce, sitka spruce, redwood or cedar wood and fretboards made from the finest African ebony.
The finish is cellulose lacquer on all models, except the Kehlet “Classic” which is French polished.
