Engelmann Spruce Soundboard for Dreadnought Guitar

About This Item

Often used as an alternative to German spruce, Engelmann spruce has uniform color, tight grain, and great sound projection.

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

  • Each half is approximately 8-3/4" x 21-1/2" (222mm x 546mm)
  • Sanded to 0.125" - 0.130" thick (3.18mm - 3.30mm)

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 board but a little too thin


Verified Buyer

The soundboard I got was decent but I really think 3.1mm is a bit on the thin side. I can get a way with it but there is no room for error.


Great quality and service


Verified Buyer

Material was packed carefully and arrived safely and in great time
