A note about grades: Master Grade 5A & 4A are our very best tops they will be stiff, close even grain, good even color and will be perfectly quartered showing silking or medullary rays. AAA  will be stiff, straight grain, well quartered, may have slight color variation and good annular ring spacing, may drift to slightly wider grain toward the outer side. AA will be slightly wider ring spacing (most times toward the outer edge), more color variation. AA are very capable of producing great sounding instruments and are sometimes even as stiff or stiffer that higher grades. Definitely a best buy in tops.  A grade will usually have some visible cosmetic flaw, pin knots or some defect that will be inside a standard pattern.
 
Sitka Spruce Master 5A Master Grade 5A  are our very best tops. They will be stiff, close even grain, good even color and will be perfectly quartered showing silking or medullary rays. Always very limited quantity! Out of Stock.
