Bubinga Small Jumbo 2 2011

This small jumbo is the same as the one described above except that the red spruce top comes from the first spruce I harvested in 1998.  It has bolder grain, more late growth and wider spacing between the lines.  This kind of spruce is uncommon in guitar constuction but aesthetics do not always equate with better sound.

This spruce is hard, very light and very stiff especially across the grain enabling me to make the tops thinner wich results in a very responsive guitar.
