Re: Best guitar wood?

while on the topic of non-wooden materials....

years ago a friend had a collection of dan armstrong plastic-body guitars. he spent years (pre-Internet era, obviously) tracking down models that weren't the usual clear plastic, as these were much rarer. when i asked why they were rarer, he explained that armstrong had discovered that the tinted plastic bodies were fine everywhere except on stage in front of bright lights: the energy they absorbed caused the body to expand enough to cause major intonation problems as a concert went on.

the things you learn playing guitar ;-)

cheers,

d
