Thermal curing also known as “torrefication”, “roasting” or “baking” is a drying technique which accelerates the natural aging process of wood. Once the curing process is complete, the appearance of the wood has changed- it has a golden brown coloration commonly see on many vintage instruments. Not only does baking change the outward appearance of the wood it structurally causes the wood to be stiffer and lighter in weight a winning combination when it comes to soundboards.

Adirondack Spruce produces strong volume, pronounced individual note clarity and recreates the "vintage sound." It is responsive whether played softly or loudly and is well suited for fingerstyle, flatpicking, or rhythm playing.
