Acoustic Guitar Tops
The soundboard is the part of the acoustic guitar most responsible for creating great tone. At Luthiers Mercantile International, we pride ourselves on being able to present soundboards of exceptional quality. During times when our Master Grade (or 4A grade, as they are more commonly called) is not available, you can assume that the 3A tops will offer quality acceptable for fine handmade guitars. In the lower grades, you can expect a small compromise in the cosmetics of the wood in exchange for a great value. Find out why many of the top guitarmakers trust LMI when shopping for soundboards. As always, we welcome your suggestions to help us select the right tonewood for you.
In order to expertly grade our tops, we sand every acoustic flattop top we sell but we leave them thick enough so you can take them to their final finished thickness. We can also provide this service for you by way of the on-page customizations.
Using filters on this site can make finding exactly what you want a simple task. Use the menus above to access the most helpful filters. Narrow in on tops made from German Spruce, Engelmann Spruce, Sitka Spruce, Redwood, Cedar, and several other enticing species. Many of these fine tops can be included in our guitar kits (See the Kit Wizard section of our website).
