Wallace Detroit Guitars founder Mark Wallace says “Chevrolet is a foundational element in the story of Detroit.” He says using the wood was an attractive opportunity for a “company that honors the history of Detroit in every instrument we make.” Plus, he says, the maple is “gorgeous” and provides a sound “unlike any other instrument.”
