My Gibson J-45 True Vintage has a torrefied top and it is an absolute cannon!
Torrefaction: it works. The extra baking (or the applied external device) does open up the sound of the guitar. It’s good
having a chemistry background and understanding some plant biology it makes sense, seems reasonable. Clearly there is a sound difference. I think it’s good and worth the uncharge
Tony and Noah,
Always enjoy the show and I usually learn something new and useful. I noticed on Tony’s Wazinator segment that your wife (I imagine) still had a plant hanging on one of your guitar mounts. I guess having one less guitar on the wall is one of those compromises of marriage and I could see something like that happening in my house. Thanks for doing the show. Please keep up the good work. I am listening from Whitefish, MT
Question: why is the outro music for AT a solo banjo piece? Clawhammer, if I’m not mistaken – but if you are going to use alternate instruments, how about some mandolin?
Am I part of the torrefaction faction? Have not played one, but I understand that it is an attempt to quickly “age” the top and emulate the properties of an old, worn in instrument. It makes sense. Question: do terrified tops continue to age? If so, how will this affect future sound, response, etc.?

Mike here, from Richmond Guitars 4 Vets. I was honored that you mentioned my visit to your studio a few weeks ago in the latest Acoustic Tuesday show. It was a pleasure to meet you and talk about the G4V program. All of the instructors in the Richmond chapter appreciate very much what you do for the organization.
P.S I’m sure my son will appreciate the plug you made for the Bozeman Brewing Company!
Having trouble with the Blackhawks shirt! I am from Vancouver.

Hey Y’all, Paul here from sunny Southwest Florida. I can certainly appreciate your fascination with the Canadian’s. My wife is Canadian, hailing from the same home town of a fella you might have heard of, Gordie Howe. I too find a good chunk of humor and comedic material in the culture of our neighbors from the Great White North. Have you ever checked out the show Letterkenny? There are a ton of clips on YouTube. It’s hilariously Canadian. Regarding the wife. I will never sort out how it is that she comes from Canada and always wears a hoodie or some kind of jacket on the hottest of Florida days. Can’t wrap my head around it.
Hey Tony. You mentioned “Blue Moon of Kentucky” on AT112. Did you ever see Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Star’s version on YouTube? It’s not a waltz but a Presleyized version. I think Paul is playing a Martin D 28 and Ringo’s drumming really adds to this version. Loved Acoustic Tuesday. Keep up the good work. (Hi Noah!)
