Spruce Solid Body Wood (All tops are book matched)

Harvested in British Columbia, Sitka Spruce. Standard on most production guitars now, and for good reason. This top wood offers a punchy direct sound although it tends to have low overtone content. Many bluegrass players prefer Sitka Spruce for this reason. The color of Sitka ranges from white to creamy to very light brown. It should be noted that some regions of Western Canada produce a very white Sitka Spruce in which discoloring is rare. We target this whiter Sitka Spruce in response to customers desiring a brighter, purer white soundboard similar to Engelmann Spruce and European Spruce.

Black Walnut (All tops are book matched)

Probably the most under-utilized North American hardwood species for tonewood, It is lighter in weight than most of the tropical hardwoods, but still a durable and very stable wood. Black Walnut is the naturally darkest in color of the indigenous domestic hardwood species, it is great to work with and has a excellent sound, and some have very nice figuring. An all round great wood.
