Greetings,

I recently ordered a couple of Bearclaw Sitka guitar tops and I wanted to let you know that not only did they arrive safe and sound but they are beautiful. Amazing figure! Having been less than satisfied with some wood suppliers over the years it's comforting to know that LMII has consistently come across in both quality and integrity. I never have to worry and that's a wonderful thing!

Thanks again,
Marc Beneteau

Cherry, American

Prunus serotina

American Cherry is a wood common to fine-woodworking in the USA, being one of the few native hardwoods that has an attractive, warm color and sometimes, curly figure. It appears occasionally on factory instruments (it can be found on some Martins), though the scarcity of figured Cherry has limited its use in recent decades.

Tonally it is compared to other medium-density woods like Walnut and Maple, though some compare it with Mahogany. Expect an open quality with nice separation and clear trebles and good presence in the mid-range.
