Made of plywood, best guitar I've ever played.
Here is my plywood p.o.s Gibson Es 175 skate ramp thing:
stays in tune better than any guitar I've ever had...
Sounds like a "troll" comment to me, and really implies that the OP knows nothing at all about how hollow body guitars in general are constructed.
Can we PLEASE stop saying PLYWOOD?!?!?!?
So the Eric Clapton Crossroads ES 355, worth £9999 here is not worth your time or effort because of its construction techniques? Last person I heard using such an argument was Ed Roman (RIP) and he ended his days operating out of a small shack on waste ground somwhere apparently....
Now what arbitrary reasoning makes you entitled to a better guitar?
take a look at the Hofner build video and you may change your mind about plywood
guitar construction. it's not a bad thing at all.
HA! That right there is the best thing to come out of this thread!
Obvious troll is obvious.
do you think this issue really comes down to how acoustic guitars are marketd.. solid wood acoustic cost more, why im not sure. so, it gives the impresion the laminated ones are poor sounding. i have to disagree. iv heard some great sounding laminated acoustics.. and yes, they age too. its all relative. i think we can blame marketing on how we look at laminated guitars. just a opinion which really means nothing since all ill ever be able to afford is a solid top, laminated acoustic, which i did buy. and it sounds great. ( the feed back has to be a big improvement is solid ones do indeed feed back ore ) sorry, i just do not trust marketing. from what i use to think from what i have been learning to build my own. blah on them. i so not even bother to buy guitar magazine any more. i just read the free online one.
Some old plywood jobs that live in my house:
A 1952 ES 350, a 1953 ES 175, a 1964 Single (Hot Rodded) Anniversary, and a 2005 Double Anniversary.
You should just burn those for warmth this winter. Or maybe start the barbecue this summer with them or something... it doesn't matter. You're fooling yourself, kid! Don't you know those are plywood?
Thanks for posting that link.Haven't seen that before.Seriously,I could watch those factory clips all day!
You'll have to send those guitars down to the skate park for proper use!!!!! It's a sin to use that crap material for a git-fiddle!!!
It's pretty obvious that this Lee guy is just trolling
I got an Uncle from Chicago, he responds exactly like that if he doesn't like the way you answer or say something to him. I'm convinced it's a Chicago thing. Got one in Jersey thats even worse tho... Go figure.
Sorry if this answer is a dupe, but there's at least one company out there building an all solid-wood, carved archtop: Eastman. Played their 335 copy, the T185MX, and it's a killer. Drop-dead gorgeous woods and wood binding, great set of pickups, super comfy neck, all for under $2K out the door. Honestly, I've played 61XX-series Gretsches, Gibby 335 and 339 and this blew them all out of the water in terms of sound and playability. They did some neat stuff with the center block to reduce weight and improve top response without giving up the feedback resistance that a 335-style body gives you. Really clever.
You can say that again!
...how'd you ever manage to get stuck with all that CRAP?
