European spruce yields a distinctive sonic profile relative to other spruce species. Visually it often shares the lighter complexion of Engelmann spruce. Tonally it blends the power and headroom of Adirondack spruce with a touch of cedar's warmth. Depending on the body style and wood it's paired with, it can match well with sophisticated chords and fingerstyle arrangements, strummers with a firm attack, and any player looking for a responsive tone with nice complexity.
