The S&P Woodland models feature Select Pressure Tested Solid Tops in solid cedar or solid spruce, both offering excellent response and projection. The back and sides are made from a 3-way lamination of authentic hard wood . These back and sides, along with the solid tops, are finished with a Custom Polished Finish that will not impede the sound quality of the instrument, in comparison to a thick polyester finish that will muffle the true sound of the guitar. The comfort of the silver leaf maple necks in the Woodland series comes from the process of individually buffing and sanding each neck by hand. Found and harvested in North Eastern Quebec, Silver leaf maple is a wood similar to the density of mahogany but much less porous, which allows for it to be treated to an incredibly smooth finish.
