Alpine Spruce

Picea abies
Central Europe

Alpine spruce is a tonewood with probably the longest tradition in music instrument making, having been used in making guitars, violins, and pianos for centuries. At present, Alpine spruce is becoming an exclusive material because it is more and more difficult to find wood with the high grade needed to ensure the premium quality of Furch guitars. Alpine spruce has a very light color and comes either with straight or bear claw grain pattern.
