Years ago Bicycling magazine did a blind comparison of steel tubing. This was when Tange Prestige tubing just came out, and they wanted to compare to the "standard" of the day (Columbus SL). They hired one of the best frame builders of the time (Bruce Gordon) to build identical frames (same geometry, same lugs) and paint them different colors to tell them apart. The two frames were assembled into bikes using identical components, and a panel of experts test rode both bikes over many miles and under a variety of conditions. After hours of comparison and discussion, they concluded that the pink bike felt faster, stiffer, more resilient, more comfortable and lighter, so it must be the new frame tubing. They contacted Bruce, and he told them the Pink bike was built with the Columbus SL (the old "standard") and the blue bike was built with Tange Prestige (the opposite of what they had all concluded). Eventually they decided that the color might have had more influence on their conclusions than they had initially considered! The variables in materials found when building steel road bikes are far smaller than those found when working with wood, so my question is, what colors are the 2 guitars in question? Photos please! We now return you to your regularly scheduled debate about wood's contribution to tone in an electric guitar!
