Sitka is really a wonderful top wood. Congratulations,
Luthiers Kathy Wingert and Laurent Brondel tell me they love using it for tops with Brazilian Rosewood, but most buyers shy away from it.
Guitarist Larry Pattis told me he prefers it to all other kinds of spruce.
My Dread is Sitka Brazilian and I just love it.

Sitka is a fine top wood. SCGC does a masterful job with it and Indian – my 27-year-old OM attests to that.
It’s a beautiful instrument – enjoy it!

A SC eir/Sitka OM is the single best all-around do anything, go anywhere, keep forever (or even longer) guitar I can imagine – just wonderful!
The only downside is having to decide where you go from there – maybe a nice ‘29 00, or do you go for a 12 fret dread? Maybe a 12 string! Or better – a baritone!!
While you agonize over that, you’re gonna be lovin’ that OM! 🙃
Lots o’ SCGC guitars! But never ask which is my fav
