Being a luthier-hobbyist myself, I recently built a Flamenco guitar using sonically graded Sitka spruce from Pacific Rim Tonewoods. The quality of their wood helped me make a clear step forward as an instrument builder, and I'm looking forward to collaborating with this amazing company for many years to come.

One of my jobs at Collings Guitars for the last 33 years has been ordering and putting into production Pacific Rim Tonewoods Sitka spruce tops. The quality and consistency of their soundboards is outstanding—it doesn’t get any better.
