Concerto Body Shape: A new body shape with a bigger, louder, more lush sounding guitar with complex, textured tone.

Bearclaw Sitka spruce has a shallow, cross-grain curl that seems to increase cross-grain stiffness in acoustic guitars. Many luthiers feel that it enhances the tone and sustain of spruce. Strong, focused tone with strong fundamental — perfect for flatpicking styles. Usually takes a slightly longer period of playing time to open up. Not so cleanly defined as European spruce but, instead, as warmer, more fundamental, and largely free of overtones. It’s a good, solid sound and bluegrass flatpickers and folk-musicians tend to like it a lot. Looks like a bear has clawed across the grain of the wood. Highly appreciated for its unique patterns, resulting in an eye-catching shimmer. The figure in bearclaw is not actually caused by a bear clawing the tree. While the true cause of the figure is unknown, it is widely assumed to be caused by either genetic mutation or climactic stress.
