Top Engelmann Spruce, 3A grade, archtop

$352.33

Though it has been in common use for less time than Sitka or German Spruce, Engelmann has risen in stature to equal these woods. These days many makers use Engelmann in lieu of German Spruce since good Engelmann has many of the traits desirable in a good German top. In addition, it is more economical with far better overall quality. In appearance, it is like German Spruce, but unlike German Spruce, it seems to be more uniform in consistency and it has a beautiful ivory sheen. The tops are often more homogeneous looking with the early and late growth rings being less distinct than those of Sitka. It's stiffer than Sitka Spruce perpendicular to the grain.
