    It's not the particles that make it work, it's the toneglue. If you choose the wrong glue it's almost as bad as using poplar...

    As the bowl of petunias said, "oh no, not again!"

    But what if you mostly play poplar music?

    Something about this, reminds me of the guy who bought the finest guitar that anyone in town had ever seen, they all played it and loved it, but the owner chose himself to play some heinous, abominable music on this fine instrument. And the whole guitar essentially went to waste.

    I'm not going to give the thumbs up to a guitar with a particleboard body, not even if SRV returned from the Hereafter and personally played it for us. I'm just agin' it and so this test is a waste of someone's time.

    What matters more than anything, is the whole shebang. I think when part of the experience is messed up, it is all messed up.

    Particle board for houses, tone woods for guitars.

    Great job. I can see this video being referenced for years to come around here.
