Tonewood – Does it make a difference in Electric Guitars

This is an attempt to question the validity of ‘Tonewood’ in electric guitars. Many will tell you that it doesn’t make any difference what the body of an electric guitar is made from. Others, generally those who want to sell you guitars want you to believe otherwise.

So I’ve taken a perfectly decent guitar and matched the the body with the most “tonally” bad piece of wood I had, a piece of chipboard kitchen worktop.

The results are fascinating, and not a good result for many folks involved with this big, and potentially expensive argument.
