Guitar players seem to form a romantic attachment to the details and the unique compositions of their instruments, and then attach deeper meaning to those things.

I own many guitars, and couldn't care less whether they are spruce, mahogany, alder, ash, basswood, balsa, or plywood.

Does it feel good in my hands, does it stay in tune, does it sound really good?
Then it's a keeper.

I have really nice acoustics by Martin and Takamine.
My favorite go-to performance keeper of an on-stage acoustic, however, is an inexpensive workhorse.

It sounds great, has the lowest, easiest action ever, and I can beat the hell out of it.
It's a $180 JBP acoustic-electric I bought locally ten years ago.
It was on sale for $138, as I recall.
I plastered a KISS sticker on it a few years ago.
It's been dropped, scarred, and patched up.

I have absolutely no idea what sort of wood it's made of, and I really don't care.
The thing just feels and sounds great, gig after gig.

Those were also brand-new guitars, so a key variable is missing in the analysis: what happens to tone over time.

apart from that - no difference between a Dove and a J-60 or Sparrow ? A maple J-45 and old hog ditto, D-18 vs D-28. .

There absolutely is a difference em
Even to my uncaring ears

I think the point in this 祖lickbait Or propaganda is to dispel the notion that certain woods are BETTER than others
Being a guitar maker you池e not allowed to use the woods that guitar players consider to be the best woods for a guitar , so they have to convince us to get rid of our ideas
And they MAY be right , not saying they are. But you致e gotta keep the mind open

I don't understand why they even brought "playability" into the discussion. That's a function of geometry - neck angle, bridge height, string spacing... Nobody (or least I don't) expects a walnut J15 to be less playable than a hog J45. If the same builder built the same guitars using the same templates and the same amount of care, with just different woods, one would expect the playability to be identical.

Fifty-two guitarists were then brought into a dimly-lit room to play each of the instruments.... When they assessed the sound quality and playability of the guitars, their ratings for all six were very close.

Additionally, when 31 of the guitarists were asked to identify which instrument was which based on its sound and feel, they had considerable difficulty doing so.

Does that mean that 21 of the guitarists had no difficulty identifying "which instrument was which"?

My local bar once ran a whiskey tasting contest for charity
Of course all the whiskey connoisseurs entered
Not one of them identified their own whiskey
In fact the contest was won by a man who drinks gin

The next day all the whiskey connoisseurs came in and still bought the whiskey they think is the best

Nowadays it's hard to believe Studies & Polls.. In most cases they're perverted to prove whatever you want to prove.....

What gets me is a tree grows and then dies and falls over, other trees grow and take its place. The trees purpose it to be cut some where in that cycle to be used. I would almost bet some would go as far as to stop the new planting of this tree to make a point.

A tree is a renewable resource a forester once told me trees in general grow for 65 years and then they cut them down to use as lumber and replant that area. He says he will be dead and gone but one thing for sure someone else will cut down and use these trees in 65 years, and plant more.

If it were true what the study is trying to suggest, the change would have taken place years ago and they would never would have had to waste their time trying to make a point in the cult of sustainability.

Hell, I don't know and don't care. All I know is that each of my guitars sounds different from the rest. Of course, I'm 71 now and maybe I'm just hearing things others can't, or I'm not hearing things that others can........Anyway, this dreaded news won't ruin my day, but for those who will fret (lol) over it, there's this..... https://www.youtube....h?v=oL2B-AAnsHo
