Richie Kotzen, former guitarist for heavy metal bands Poison and Mr. Big, told Scientific American: “Many years ago I had decided what my favorite woods were on a guitar. I learned that I liked a swamp ash body with a maple neck, and I stuck with it. Now I’m going to have to figure out a replacement wood for ash.”

Like he hasn't got enough guitars to last him, or can't buy some up now before any real price increases have happened??

My favorite part of that was referring to Mr. big and Poison as heavy-metal bands! o_O

i honestly was thinking more along the lines, that in the future it will be: welcome the new line of plywood bodied electric guitars!!! the latest technology of plywood guitars that have tone for years!!!!! b/c we can keep making plywood!!!!!! or something like that!!!!
behold your new miracle tone wood:


I guess he must burn them for firewood each winter if they're that much of a consumable asset to him.



Countdown to soylent tonewood?

lol at that bs, propaganda title.
I'm not sure I understand - which part is propaganda? The lack of Ash? That climate change is real? That climate change is responsible for the lack of ash? I'm unclear. Where I live the Emerald Ash Borer has been a GIANT pain in the ass. I have a big ole Ash in my front yard that has to get treated annually. X100,000 Ash trees have been cut down in St. Paul - it's actually very sad. :(
