    Beautiful guitar!

    Well, normally for any instrument regardless of body style, maple is said to be brighter sounding while mahogany would be darker (mellower?). Is it a semi-hollow or full hollow?

    P.S: Quel temps il fait

      Il doit encore faire froid la bas... Ici a Edinburgh il fait 15 degres environs.

            The maple=bright, mahogany=dark only goes so far, and only really applies to solid body guitars. Some mahogany-top acoustics are actually fairly bright and mid-rangey.
