How many A's does GOR Got?


Recommended Posts

I was wondering hearing of them A's for wood quality.


-Who assign how many A's a wood have?


-How many A's does a GOR LE have?


-What is the maximum number of A's rating can a wood have?


-Does more A's sound better? or just look better?

Since a GOR has an Opaque Blue Silver burst painted top - no "A" rating is possible, since you can not see the wood on the 1st run GOR.


The "A" "AA" or "AAA" rating are for translucent finished instruments where the figured top (typically Maple) is judged for its three dimensional Flame or Quilted Maple top.
