Ancient Sitka Archtop

I am not sure how many archtop guitar sets we will be able to get from the remaining small ancient sitka log. But here is one that Ryan was able to get. 1″ joining edge thickness 5/16″ outer edge thickness x 7.75″ wide, x 22.25″ long. My smallest archtop gtr pattern is 16″ traced on for the pic.

These tops are produced with the finest tonewood fiber in the world. Procured from salvage sourced old-growth Sitka Spruce.

    Yes. Was done by Beta Analytical Inc in Florida, I contacted the local USFS Ranger district to ask who they use for their geological and archeological dating.  The test was done in 2012 and the result showed the tree buried 2850 +/_ 30yrs BP[before present].  That dates the tree getting buried in the mud slide around 850BC. The tree was under 250 yrs old. It was a relatively small diameter tree. So I calculate the tree sprouted around 1100 BC.

    Answered by the admin They could be re-sawn into thin boards, but for a dreadnought would require to join a 4 pc top. Thank you for bringing this product to my attention. Dreadnaught tops are selling for $2000 now.
