Re: Best/Favorite Guitar Woods
So I think I'm going to start out building 3. 2 with not such expensive woods(paduak, basswood, ultralight weight ash.), but one I want to go all out on and instead of having a quilted maple top I think I'll make the whole body a solid block of quilted maple. I won't be using much other than 5A (or better if I can find it) woods when it comes to figure, just because I want to become known for some beautiful guitars. Although I realize Maple will make the guitar pretty bright, but Ill see what I can do to fix that.
Thanks again to all of you, I knew I could count on you guys for suggestions on what the high end guitar community is looking for. Also I did post this in the "other 6 string guitars" area but I'll definately be doing 7's and maybe even 8's if I get the requests for some. Myabe my first 3 should one 6 string, one 7 string, and an eight if you guys think theres a real market for it. I know I can barely handle 7, but then again there are some great players out there who could prolly occupy 10 strings lol. Another think I'm trying to offer is not so expensive customs, I mean $3-4000 is a lot to some people and bringing that down to the $2000 hell even $1500-$1700 range would make a lot of people have beautiful guitars made to fit thier taste without killing thier bank account.
