Adirondack or Red Spruce

Well over 90% of our guitars are built with Adirondack Spruce tops. Red spruce has virtually all of the best qualities of the other species. It offers a strong fundamental, lush complex overtones, and a unique sparkling edge to the tone of an instrument which is quite distinctive. Many of the finest steel string guitars from the first quarter of the last century had red spruce tops.
