Will Fly Endangered wood is pointless for guitars (26) RE: Endangered wood is pointless for guitars 23 Jan 19

I've commissioned 3 custom guitars over the years - all from the same luthier and all from different woods. All three "woke up" after bring played regularly. After about a year, they all sounded more resonant, warmer in tone and louder. New guitars need the wood to vibrate, and vibration is caused by playing.

I've just bought a 22-year old Lowden - huge volume and resonance, absolute clarity across the bass/treble range, and lots of projection. That's a guitar that had truly woken up.
