    That’s describing a reaction to science, not the science itself.

    My own non scientific experience, keeping in mind that I’m not primarily an acoustic player—

    I’ve owned a couple of nice Martin rosewood guitars. Beautiful, sounded wonderful, but to me and my playing style, they had a quality that I would describe as a lack of focus, or maybe presence. Switching to mahogany addressed that perfectly, to my ears.

    I play mostly blues, and on acoustic, that’s acoustic blues. Somehow though, when I hear Eric Clapton, for just one easy example, playing his rosewood Martins, I don’t have a problem with it all!

    I have two Martin Dreads, one Mahogany backed D17M, and one Rosewood backed HD28. And you can definately hear the difference in back woods and what they bring to the table. The rosewood is scooped in the middle and it very wide in range in frequency, where as, the D17M is flatter across the board. I love them both. Here's what they sound like...

    What you play and how you play it is infinitely more important on an acoustic guitar than an electric, and many orders of magnitude greater than what wood species the guitar was made from.

    I can sure hear the difference between finger style playing and flat-pick strumming in those two samples, though.
