Top Wood


Recommended Posts

There is much talk about Adirondack and Sitka spruce tops. How would I know which one my 15 year old J-45s were made from?


It's very likely Sitka. If you post some close-up photos that show the top grain, we can make some educated guesses. (I say "guesses" because there's some Sitka that looks enough like Adi to fool even experts. But, in general, grain features make it 100% certain that Sitka is Sitka and 99% certain that Adi is Adi.)
