German Spruce Tops

German Spruce guitar by Bob Desmond.

Picea excelsa, P. abies

German Spruce is a common term for Spruce coming from Europe, but it is not really accurate. Guitar grade Spruce has not come out of Germany for many years now. The best material comes from the former Yugoslavia region. When you order German Spruce from LMI, you can expect the excellent, slightly golden-colored tonewood that, for years now, has been the staple of the bowed instrument world, and a favorite among high-end steel string and classical guitar builders. We carry the finest German Spruce available, including sets with bearclaw figure.
PLEASE NOTE: It is not uncommon to find some small, isolated bits of bearclaw figure in all grades except 4A grade. If it is essential that your soundboard be free of this, please let us know when you place your order
