Does anyone know what kind of tone spruce will give as tonewood for a guitar?
Because wood is expensive here in the netherlands and european (norwegian) spruce is one of the reasonable prices woods here

Well, Spruce is used in acoustic guitars. Although, I'm not sure which variety of Spruce. Mainly used for the top, as far as I'm aware but with some made with a whole body of spruce.

In acoustic guitars it's a good, brighter, yet well rounded wood witha high dynamic ceiling. They usually use Sitka, Englman (sp?) and Adriondack.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

What Shin said is correct. One of the brighter sounding woods used in acoustics, but warmer than maple. Probably the most common wood for acoustic tops. Never heard of an electric made of it.

In the future though, this kind of question needs to go in the Tone Wood thread, that is what we made it for.
