Ancient Sitka Tenor Guitar
The tree started growing around 1100BC, and then aprox 250 years later [850BC] during a SE Alaska Storm, a mountain landslide brought the tree down and buried it under 20 feet of rock and mud. The tree became saturated with the mineral water of the mountains numerous seeps. Carbon dated at 2850 +/- 30BP The wood oxidized to the blue grey color because of the permeation of of minerals and element for the near 3000 yrs of saturation. There was only 200 board feet of small diameter log total volume. Of small diameter log to start with so the number of total 2 PC guitar sets of any size is unknown but for sure Very limited.
These tops are produced with the finest tonewood fiber in the world. Procured from salvage sourced old-growth Sitka Spruce.
