Today, I’m excited to share two beautiful guitars that, on paper, I hated. Seriously. But sure enough, I bought them. So what changed my mind? Why are they two of my favorite guitars now?
This episode is dedicated to judging a book by its cover, and why you shouldn’t do it. Here’s the skinny: I spent most of my career as a guitarist convinced that maple was not the tonewood for me. I avoided it like the plague. And then I discovered a guitar that turned this aversion completely on its head.
It was a custom Martin OM with a maple body back and sides. This guitar is a true work of art, with its maple tonewoods and beautiful finish. I’ll be demonstrating its sound and feel, as well as discussing the process of how this guitar entering my arsenal.
Next up is the Huss & Dalton L13 Crossroads Deluxe. This guitar is simply stunning, with a solid Adirondack spruce top and solid East Indian rosewood back and sides. I’ll be giving you an in-depth review of its tone, playability, and overall craftsmanship.
As always, I’ll be providing plenty of tips and techniques along the way, so whether you’re a seasoned player or just starting out, there’s something for everyone in this episode. So sit back, relax, and join me as we explore the world of acoustic guitar!
