Thanks anyways. I get the sense cherry will be slightly less damping than maple and not have quite as dry of a sound. ... Knowing about your guitar gets me a nudge closer to giving it a try.iim7V7IM7 wrote: ↑Tue Jul 11, 2017 9:49 pmNo, unfortunately I cannot provide you with a comparison that you seek.
I can tell you that these materials in Peter's hands created a WONDERFUL guitar. When I commissioned this instrument, I asked him what woods that he had in his wood locker that he always wanted to build a guitar with? The answer was WRC and Black Cherry. The WRC set was also quite special acoustically, but had a bunch of distinct hard line that was likely to put off some players. Peter said this set was harvested from an Oregon forest in the 1980s.
Perhaps Peter will see your post and provide comment?
