AAA Sitka Spruce Classical Guitar Tops
Overview AAA Sitka Spruce Classical Guitar Tops:
Originally Native to North America, sitka spruce possesses a perfect combination of elasticity and strength. It shares many of the qualities of other spruces, which makes it a first choice for instrument tops. A versatile wood like few others, sitka spruce tops will offer great sonic response whether fingerpicking or strumming chords. Use sitka spruce on your next guitar and enjoy its remarkable acoustic qualities.
Its distinct pinkish lines give it a different look than other spruces, more uniform in color and appearance and therefore less appealing. Therefore, the sitka spruce stands out from all other spruce used for instrument tops because of its appearance. Its look, together with its excellent tonal qualities, makes it one of the most sought-after woods for tops. It is for these reasons that many builders and well-known brands such as Gibson, Taylor, Martin, etc. use sitka spruce tops on their models.
How are sitka tops classified?
In AAA grade sitka spruce tops we can expect to find slow growth rings from the center to the ends, with very little variation between them, cut at 90º or with little deviation. Uniform color throughout and practically devoid of flaws. But if there are any, they will be minimal and will not compromise the structure or acoustics of the soundboard. This is why AAA grade sitka spruce tops have been used on high-end guitars for decades.
