Don Everly’s Everly in Gibson Acoustic Posted March 4 · Report reply 14 hours ago, 62burst said: That line has been going around in my head, trying to figure out what you meant there. And I agree about people prejudging that a maple guitar won't "cut through the mix" in a string band. What? Find a hole in the rhythm, syncopate, get into some chord comping, or play with those who take turns lowering their volume for you to take a break. What about the acoustics used in the early big bands? The L5 and Super 400. All the vintage arch top guitars I’ve owned were maple.
