Tone woods,

Recommended Posts

I love all kindsa of em,  seeing what specs people choose, it is very daunting; my eyes and dreamy imagination get away from me. At the end of the day, I check my wallet and my ears. If a guitar has great tone wood and is quilted, tiger striped or some other natural beauty and no more cost, I will jump. However, I usually prefer Mahogany. I confess that mid century Jrs are my standard bearer. If it sounds good, it is all I need. This is why I overwhelmingly purchase solid color guitars  This has been my rule of thumb.

Of course rules were meant to be broken.

As I've pared down the numbers I notice those I'm keeping are the more subdued of the bunch.  Part of that is most certainly because "fancy" is more attractive to buyers but I think I'm generally more drawn to the plain-janes when I'm reaching for something to play.  They're for sure a better reflection of my playing than the blinged-out models I sold.
