Sitka Spruce Soundboard for Small Guitar

About This Item

Bookmatched sets of two quartersawn halves. When joined they're large enough for classical, 000, and parlor size guitars.

  • Each half is approximately 7-7/8" x 20-1/2" (200mm x 521mm)
  • 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.

Great Buy for Smaller Instruments

By

Verified Buyer


I make a lot of 3/4 size Classics and Steelers. This buy is great and doesn't leave a lot of useless leftovers. The wood has nice even grain and sands smooth to final thickness.

Tapa armónica para guitarra clásica

By

Verified Buyer


Muy linda madera, buen grosor, bien cortada, bien cepillada lo único que puedo decir es que venían unas marcas de uno de los lados que no sé si es de la Luz o algo similar, de lo demás nada para decir.

Good. Not great.

I bought the AA grade soundboard kit. Beautiful pieces, with no visible sign of bending action. The only problem is that one of the pieces came with a 2" border damage. It looks like a residual bad cut or saw mark. It won't affect the work in my guitar, but I will not have some extra wood for another small project. I guess that is what you get for that grade and price. I do recomend the product.

"AA" should be renamed "Don't Bother"  

By

Verified Buyer


Let me start by saying that I have purchased these AA tops before and have felt like I have received decent product for the price.

Now, look at the picture of what I just unboxed. It looks as though a corner was ripped off by a disgruntled warehouse worker. What you cannot see in the picture is the amount of grain run-out. It is so bad that it is almost funny. Getting a clean layout out of this piece of wood would be nearly impossible.

Most reputable wood sellers would have sold this as a bargain piece or, better yet, just thrown it in the trash. I will not be buying Spruce from StewMac again.
