So, I bought an Epiphone Materbilt on the used market...The AJ Model with the Rosewood back/sides and Spruce top, great guitar with excellent quality for the cash but find it a bit darker than I like. Basically, the acoustic is for strumming around the house (or I'd have a Hummingbird!) so I don't need anything high end....Would mahogany or maple bodies be brighter? I really dig the old Guild D25s and was looking at those....Any suggestions? Maybe different strings? Cheers!
