Appreciate the offer, will get the book you recommended first, get myself ready for the build then let ya know whats happening… by the by, where are you located? I agree that the back board is the bounce, but there is a difference in how the sound is changed dependent on the woods used, my Maple back and sides jumbo is much crisper and brighter than my Mahogany back and sides. Both have solid spruce tops. there is also a better bottom end with a rosewood back and sides then any of the other commercially available guitars out there.. I have been playing for a little over 25 years and have gone through a couple hundred guitars, they all have sounds that are unique to themselves, granted the difference in tops makes a huge difference, I.E. spruce, cedar, Maple, I have a friend that has one of all Koa, very unique sound indeed..thanks again, will be ordering that book tomorrow morning… really want to get the ball rolling on this asap.. I have a real nice piece of 12/4 Mahogany, the real stuff that I was given by a friend a couple years ago, gonna cut my neck out of that..
