To what extend do tonewoods contribute to the sound of a guitar? What about the construction? In both building and buying we can draw from a well of knowledge, but are often drenched in the flood of opinions.
Richard Heeres has been building steel string, Spanish, and jazz guitars for the past 25 years. In this lecture he will share what he holds to be true about everything to do with tone. You will be tapping tonewoods and hear what they do for the sound of a guitar once it’s finished.
