Western Redcedar has continued to gain in popularity, especially among classical guitar makers. Today many high quality nylon string guitars are made with Cedar. Cedar is softer, and not as strong nor as elastic as Spruce, but it is more stable with changes in moisture content. It is liked for its warm color, straight grain, and clear crisp tap tone. The color ranges from light to reddish to chocolate brown. Interesting color variations and streaking available in A and AA grade tops. Please inquire.
