GUEST,Richard general question for guitar guru (33) RE: general question for guitar guru 10 Jul 09

With particular reference to Richard Bridge's point, I've heard (sorry, no idea where!) that flat-top guitars reach their peak in about 60 years, whereas carved arch-top instruments, presumably including mandolins and guitars, can take up to 300 years, thereby explaining the irreproducible qualities of Strads, Amatis etc. But they all sulk if you don't play them.
