Tone Wood Importance


Recommended Posts


"But on the other hand, nobody in this field ... would ever say that if you put the best wood in the world in the hands of a mediocre maker that you would get a good instrument,"

I found this on CNN's site - it isn't specific to guitars but I thought it was interesting. There has been so much talk about tone and how much the wood is actually responsible for it that I thought some of you might be interested in this article.

Thanks for the link.

That makes a lot of sense. I think they're probably right about it being a combination of things. A couple other factors they didn't mention; old instruments may sound better because they have been played so much, the vibrations do something to improve the sound. There's also a psychological aspect I think. If you believe something is incredible, it probably will be.
