Listen to the clip and make your choice.
Neither.... When all is said and done an electric guitar needs to be dialed in - plugged in -not obsessed about acoustically. Hey its your obsession get rid of it already.
I did. Quartersawn gone Sunday. New flat sawn AA flame neck CS 51 Tele on its way!!!
DONE with plinky tone!! Hello vintage flat sawn!!!! My first flat sawn CS Tele!!! Cant WAIT!!
Too bad flame necks have the plinkiest tone there is.
Not trying to start a flame war, but... isn't flame vs. non-flame also a thing for some who obsess on such things?
What you find as a negative attribute is a positive one for someone else but when all is said it and every other guitar is just that a guitar. Most likely the guitars anemic PU's were a poor match for it, nothing more. That said we need another fatuous thread to mull over, maunder, and brush back the uncertain certainties of the day...
Absolutely! I have found highly figured to sound far better. A few examples of the finest sounding guitars I have owned.
That 3 piece must be pretty plinky...
Sure! That's why I posted the clips!
One man likes fat, thick and elastic feeling, another likes thin, anemic, and plinky!
To each their own!!
The Buscarino Virtuoso or Gibson L5?? Both??
I can post clips of the L5!
Like I said nothing wrong with the guitar... acoustically played means nothing. Poor pick up match most likely.
I'll take your word for it.
Yes, I realize! You are one who thinks the acoustic tone of an instrument means zilch.
So why dont you play the cheapest guitar you can find and just pop in some good pups, or do you??
Damn. I was in the mood to PLAY!!
Have to be honest here guys.
I have found no correlation between figured necks and great tone.
Always have to be honest! That was all in fun!
But at the same time, no correlation between neck movement and figure either.
All seem to be about the same stability wise.
So that being said, bring on the figure because I personally love the looks of figured woods!
You couldn't post clips of the two side by side because the FS had hotter pickups. I'm certain the QS would have benefited from a better matched set. Yes unplugged still means nothing to me.
fwiw- . Ive got a partscaster with a $35 body and $30 neck. Big full sounding acoustically but that doesnt concern me. Ive got others that a pretty quite acoustically I enjoy as much. At any rate it took quite a bit of work to get the finish right. I'll never use tung oil on a porous body again, lol.
