Understanding acoustic wood, visualized…

by Josh

Thanks to Flipboard, I found this great visualization of the tonal characteristics of back and side wood found in acoustic guitars over at Breedlove Guitars.  They also do a great job of talking about how each different type of wood contributes to the tone of an acoustic guitar.  I have heard this information in many different forums as I am learning more about instrument building, but the way they graphed this data on a chart really helped me to understand better.  Also, I was not aware of the similarities between some of these woods, so I found it a very interesting read.
