Basswood rules!!!


Recommended Posts

I read some where on the internet that american basswood and asian basswood were not equal. Something about how basswood is a wood that will absorb moisture like a sponge..And basswood grown in Asia where they supposedly have higher humidity. The wood has a higher moisture content than wood used on higher end American basswood guitars..And it had something about how they dry the wood to fast and it doesnt give the wood time to shrink..or something like that..It leaves pockets in the wood fiber ...
