Top, Sitka Spruce, medium bearclaw, concert/tenor


Med. bearclaw (closeup)

Picea sitchensis

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.

Available here in bearclaw figure.
