Sinker Redwood Acoustic Tops

Sinker Redwood acoustic guitar top sets made from billets sawn from submerged old growth logs recovered from the BIg River in Northern California. This material is producing some outstanding guitars and demand for it is high. These sets have very tight rings and are brilliantly quartered.

If you are familiar with methods developed over the last several years to test acoustic tops and backs then you'll be pleased to know that these tops were tested using acoustic analysis techniques as described in the book Contemporary Acoustic Design and Build by Trevor Gore and Girard Gilet. Results of the analysis on these tops are listed in the description for each set. They all tested well and should make some wonderful sounding instruments. 

Kudos and many thanks to Chris Jenkins of Lame Horse Instruments for taking the time to test each of these tops. There are an increasing number of "Top Shelf" luthiers out there today taking serious advantage of these algorithms and using them for determining a tops "Density", "Longitudinal Resonant Frequency", and "Young's Modulus". Once these factors have been calculated, rating systems are developed that take all that data into account to produce a number that represents a deciding factor on whether or not a particular piece of material might contribute to the tone of an instrument., (i.e. "Pass/Fail Rating" that is being used for the tops listed below where a minimum 0.995 rating is considered "Passing Grade" and anything higher is considered even better).
