I like the “wild” grain! Sense I will be the only one that will be looking at it for life. Others will only get a glace of it.
Hea Tony, thanks for airing our picture yesterday. so we ordered 2 more things from G4V, got a pillow and a sticker. Yesterday was a great show & a great day. Good job everyone.
I guess we’ll get to see Noah for another week or two, but we’ll REALLY miss you! You & Tony bantering back-and-forth is one of the best things about AT.
I like a flame maple, but every other wood I like it simple.
Straight grain backs can be beautiful, but they re definitely more common. The last guitar I bought was all in spalted maple, so I guess that answers your question – exotic woods (flamed, quilted, spalted, etc.)
BTW, all of my furniture is quarter-sawn oak. I wouldn’t want to live with those wild exotic flat-sawn woodgrains all over my living room, but I love them on guitars.
We enjoyed today’s AT a lot – I like it when Tony gets silly ….. guess that says something about me!! Gonna miss “daddy” Noah, but best of luck to him and Heather in their new adventure!
Thanks, Tony. Enjoyed learning about quarter vs half sawn wood, that is a topic I was curious about. Enjoy all your Acoustic Tuesdays and always learn something. BTW, I reside near Mobile Bay in Alabama, and there is plenty of water in this state. In fact, if memory serves correctly, Mobile has the highest annual rainfall in the nation. In the northern part of the state (southern tip of the Appalachian mountains) there are many beautiful streams and waterfalls. And Noah had it right, Auburn University is in Alabama. Y’all come down and visit sometime!
do you ever have a party where we all come to your place for a guitar community party!
Very late comment but – Quarter sawn is less susceptible to warping. Also you can have quarter sawn wood with some pretty amazing beauty.
