"red oak is used in cbg design for its strength and is definitely not "crappy" - "tonewood" is a very misleading term,..all seasoned hardwoods will resonate.."

Kevin M. Kraft replied to David Tutterrow GutBucketGuitars's discussion How much influence does the fret board have on the sound of the CBG?
