Which wood is more versatile? I have decided to buy a Blueridge, either a BR-163 or BR-143/243. The 163 has Indian Rosewood back and sides while the others have Mahogany back and sides. Which wood would be good for strumming and fingerpicking? I do a bit of both. I was initially going to just get the 163 but now I'm not sure. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
