AA Sitka Spruce Classical Guitar Tops
Overview AA 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 AA grade sitka spruce tops we can expect a slight variation in the spacing of the growth rings, which are wider than in the AAA grade. Therefore, the growth rings may be spaced slightly wider on the edges of the top. Uniform color and radial cut. Practically devoid of flaws. If so, this will not affect its structure or acoustic properties. Highly appreciated for soundboards of instruments.
