This ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFCStyKmlj4
) is an interesting duet played on similar Hanika Torres guitars - one spruce and one cedar. Part of the piece being played provides a nice/immediate contrast between the two guitars. Personally, I wonder if the spruce guitar doesn't need a bit more playing to further open up - just my impression as I preferred the cedar.
I was looking for this kind of illustration, the same guitar from a maker however one with cedar and the other spruce top, being played side by side by a comparable guitarist.
When I asked my wife about the sound/tone differences in this video clip, perhaps not being prejudiced by the look, or presumption of playing the same notes like me, she pointed out they played at a different octave (except at some particular bars).
Thus, it is not a fair comparison until the players change role in this duet, the Spuce guitar leads!
