If you have been around the industry as long as we have you have seen it all. 4 and 5 piece bodies, plywood, woods you can’t pronounce, and some that you aren’t even sure should be classified as wood. Shoot, go back to the 90’s and some companies were even laminating photographs of flame tops onto basswood or poplar bodies. Hey if it looks good then it will sound good right?
We don’t skimp on the wood! As a matter of fact, it’s where you will find a lot of cost. Finding the right tone woods and then hand-building them can, and does, make all the difference.
