In your opinion, what is the best sounding double top for the money? What luthiers do you recommend? Is there someone out there who builds great instruments but it lesser known? Thanks in advance!
Could you explain what kind of tone you are looking for? "Best" is a very subjective term. You can have 10 different double tops in one room, all sounding very different from each other.
Also if I were you, I wouldn't limit myself so thinly to only considering a double top. You can easily find a very resonant and powerful solid top as well.
