"Just received my latest classical guitar kit. I had a couple of requests for wood selection, and you did a great job in selecting on both counts, In addition, all the wood was great quality - this was an expensive kit, but your product made it a very good value to me.
Preferred for its strength and tough elasticity, Sitka Spruce can endure abuse to which the other soundboard materials are less immune, like dirt specks on the workbench and roughshod handling by the player.
Sitka Spruce is very stiff. Because of its strength and toughness it is well suited for steel string acoustic guitars. It has even been used successfully for classical guitars. The color of Sitka Spruce ranges from white to pinkish to light brown. Some tops display a lot of color variation.
No matter what grade, all of our tops are sound and can produce a nice sounding instrument. Also check out our Bearclaw Sitka Spruce, below.
