Ultra Light Sitka Spruce Jumbo Top
Ultra Light Jumbo tops are produced from the finest tonewood fiber in the world. Procured from salvage sourced old-growth Sitka Spruce.
Some are cut from old log floats built between 1950-1985 and some Cut from bridge stringer log we purchased in 1998. A log that was cut in the early 80`s for a log bridge. It is the lightest weight sitka we have ever encountered out of millions of board feet of large diameter sitka we have processed into soundboard material. 15% lighter as a matter of fact. About the same weight as our fine textured western red cedar. It is a bit looser texture that most old growth. The butt of the log had wider grain than the small end 60+ feet up the tree. They are loud and vibrant. Most boards have the occasional bearclaw.
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. If your measurements crowd these dimensions, it would be wise to let us know what your doing in the comments box of the order, during checkout; or best, contact us before ordering.
