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

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.
