These rare tops are produced with the finest tonewood fiber in the world. Procured from salvage sourced old-growth Sitka Spruce.
After decades floating a house in a remote floating logging camp, The house was moved to land and the log float salvaged. These boards cut from a floatlog in the vicinity of a 12″ long spike, that permeated the surrounding fiber with iron. The result is this oxidized blue board. Out of thousands of tops cut from these logs, only a few have the stain for the full length and width of both boards. They are blue throughout the board. The sugars of the wood has become crystalline and extra mineral added…. Could it sound better with this extra metallic element added to the fiber? I`m not a Luthier. But you are!
