Sitka Spruce Soundboard for Dreadnought Guitar

About This Item

Sitka spruce is a traditional choice for steel-string guitar soundboards.

Bookmatched sets of two quartersawn halves. When joined they're large enough for a Dreadnought guitar.

  • Each half is approximately 8-1/2" x 21" (216mm x 533mm)
  • Thickness-sanded to 0.125" - 0.130" (3.18mm - 3.30mm)
  • Unsanded tops are approx. 5/32" (4mm) thick, ready for thickness-sanding to your own specs.



Use our grading system to choose your soundboard...

Color: Higher grade soundboards have more consistent color (color affects the instrument's appearance only, not its tone).

Grain straightness: Higher soundboard grades have straighter, tighter, and more uniform grain. While closely spaced grain has been traditionally favored, luthiers have found that wider grain can produce very good tone.

Quartersawn grain: The higher the grade, the more closely quartersawn the wood. Perfectly quartered wood is more dimensionally stable and moves proportionally with changing temperature and humidity environments. This helps to ensure structural integrity and resists cracking better than other types of cuts.

Grain run-out: Our soundboards are sawn from split billets to reduce the amount of grain "run-out," caused by a twist in the tree. By splitting the log, the twist is followed when sawing. Higher grade soundboards have less run-out.

Origin and drying: Our soundboards (unless otherwise noted) are from western North America, and have been kiln-dried and stored in a climate controlled environment.

I'm using these panels as soundboards for copies of oak-bodied Anglo Saxon lyres from the Dark Ages. Though the soundboxes are small at only 8"X12"X3/4", the resonance supplied by this quarter-sawn spruce is outstanding.
Really happy with the results!

I bought 3. Two were great. The third one worked, but it looked like the beavers got to it on the narrow end. I was going to send it back but it was just big enough for the guitar pattern so I used it. Overall, they look good. I will buy them again.

Nice wood but sanded too thin.

By

Verified Buyer


While this wood was of good quality, I think it is sanded too thin. I would prefer a thickness of 0.140 as I like to be able to vary the thickness of tops depending on the stiffness.

Wonderful sound !

Verified Buyer


It was as good as sanding and finish.
I live in Japan.
Built the guitar for the first time.
I got 2 sets of wood and built the two same guitars.
This guitar was built little by little over one year and 11 months.
Very glad for two to be completed.
