"A" Grade Engelmann Spruce Soundboard (Patterned for a Dreadnought)
This listing is for one book matched soundboard patterned for a dreadnought guitar. The pictures are for representation of the grade and are not the actual boards you will receive. If you need to know the exact board you are receiving please see my other listings that are for specific sets.
"A" GRADE sets can have any or all of the following: Irregular grain, runout, winter growth lines, uneven color, curved grain, defects, defects or stains that can be covered with the fingerboard Some sets may have a defect on one side that will have to be placed on the inside of the guitar.
Engelmann Spruce (picea engelmannii) produces a warm open sound with a good midrange. It does not have the headroom to be played hard like some other Spruces but it is great for someone that plays with a lighter touch; producing rich overtones. Some builders have claimed it to be a good replacement for German Spruce.
Minimum Dimensions 2 pieces - .140+" x 8 1/8+" x 21+"
These measurements are my minimum tolerance so the wood you get could, but not always, be on the larger side. If you need specific measurements, that will need to be worked out before shipping. Not all sets are sanded, therefore, there will be some saw marks from the milling process. Additional sanding will need to be done by the buyer.
