Shrug Posted July 26, 2007 Report Share Posted July 26, 2007 I'm trying to decide on wood for a hollow or semi-hollow guitar that will be routed out (myka style http://www.mykaguitars.com/instruments/049/process.htm ) I know that maple is the traditional semi-hollow wood, but I'm worried that in this guitar it will be a bit too bright, since I'm using a padouk/rosewood neck, and at least one single coil pickup. Mahogany is the opposite end of the spectrum... if it tends to sound dark in solid guitars, wouldn't it be extremely dark in a guitar with large tone chambers? I'm looking for balance and clarity. I know some of you on here have built or played semi-hollow or hollow instruments from non-traditional woods, so I'm looking for some opinions.
