This #2 Plus Sitka Spruce Dreadnought Guitar bookset tops are also known as paint grade. Structurally and tonally sound, are just not as desired for natural clear finished guitars. But if painted guitar is what your doing, save big without sacrificing tone. This particular sort is also a paint grade, Usually the reason will be because of some kind of stain from iron[blue color] mold [black or red lines] or water stain[grey], in the pattern area. Also this sort does not have the higher density hard grain lines that can be in the other A and #2 sorts.
Dreadnaught – Most 2 pc bookset boards are cut 8.5+” x 23 but may or not pattern all of the width and length. These tops will pattern [per half] Lower bout 8”, waist 5.25 , upper bout 5.75” x 19.75-20” inches long which is the range of the 4 dreadnought gtr patterns we have to go by.
