    Regrets .....

    There are only two guitars I regret not buying. One was a 1951 Southern Jumbo. The other was a 1952 Southern Jumbo. The two best sounding acoustic guitars I have ever played. Just something about them that was unreal. Didn't have the cash at the time (these were two different opportunities...

    Top wrapping? The really big question!

    Brandt - Thanks for the links to the papers. I look forward to reading through them! Perhaps I should have been a bit more precise in what I was trying to say. I know there have been studies of Stradivari violins and the physics of vibrating strings and such. But on forums such as this...

    Top wrapping? The really big question!

    You will never get any science when it comes to discussions of tone. There are too many variables and no one ever does a proper scientific experiment with proper measurements and mathematics. At best, you will get well-reasoned, logical theories. Some of these will be based on personal...
