Can anyone help me out here...I've got 2 js700s, one Japanese & one Korean. The jap model is, as expected, a far better instrument, but here's the question -

both are meant to have mahogany bodies, but the Japanese model (although being visibly thicker) is lighter than the Korean. Anyone know why?


Cheers

There are many different species of mahogany. Honduran mahogany, for example, is particularly sought after for guitars because of its relatively light weight and resonance compared to other varieties of mahogany.

Why? I never would have known....

There's always some FREAK like Darren or RICH that know EVERY detail : )

It's certainly interesting to find out these facts.
