I may have triggered one for him, but that's OK; I'm probably going through a mid life crisis too...souldier wrote:Marcus Dominelli wrote:
I once had a client come in my shop inquiring about me building a custom classical....back in the days before I made double tops (so the spruce versus cedar question still had much relevance).
This fellow was convinced that cedar was the best wood, and he could not well enjoy a spruce guitar. Needless to say he was a bit shocked when I pointed out to him that his "cedar top" Japanese classical was actually spruce that was sprayed to look like cedar. This "cedar" guitar that he had been playing for all those years was in fact spruce.
He never ordered a guitar from me. I think he was so in shock that he had to go back to his den and mull over everything that had happened to his Universe....
Really enjoyed this story. You probably trigged a serious mid life crisis in this guys life.
