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 purchased the least expensive option to best match the original material of my guitar. Very impressed with the quality of the material selected and the care taken with shipping. Everything has worked out better than I could have expected. Thanks Stewmac.com for your professionalism and outstanding service.

Nice Top

Verified Buyer


Good color, grain spacing and tap tone - very happy. Having two sides a bit closer to square would be helpful for my plate joining method but I managed. Thanks as usual Stew Mac,

sitka AA top

By

Verified Buyer


Not as good as I expected it to be, I paid extra for a sanded top, but it didn't appear to be sanded at all, and it is not very stiff compared to the other tops I have bought from stewmac, super fast shipping as always though.
