Guitar Tonewoods Part II

Season 2 Episode 7 of Martins & More picks up where Episode 6 left off, with the focus shifting to the exotic and domestic tonewoods used for the back and sides of Martin and Blueridge acoustic guitars.

While any wood can be used to make an office desk or decorative elevator paneling, only a precious few species of hardwood has the resonant properties required to make an exceptional musical instrument. But how important is back and side wood anyway?

Which tonewood imparts what sort of influence on the voice? Do all rosewoods sound alike? For that matter, do all variations of mahogany? Which combination of top and body woods does Spoon and Maury prefer?

Find out if their druthers differ from your own in this wood-lover’s podcast. And tell us if you agree or prefer other wood combinations below, or in the Comments section under the YouTube version of this podcast.
