What is this guitar
A guitar with a torrefied spruce top, walnut back and sides, maple neck and olive fingerboard is an interesting combination of tonewoods that produces a unique sound and look.
About Torrefied spruce
Torrefied spruce, also known as thermo-treated spruce, is wood that has been heat-treated to accelerate the aging process. This gives the wood a more mature and resonant tone compared to untreated spruce, which is a popular tonewood for guitar tops.
Walnut back and sides
Walnut is a hardwood that produces a warm, mellow tone, known for its dark, rich color and attractive grain patterns.
Maple for guitar necks
Maple is a dense hardwood that is commonly used for guitar necks due to its stability and durability. It is also known for producing a bright, articulate tone that can complement the warmer tones of the walnut and torrified spruce.
Olive wood for fingerboard?
Olive, although not a common choice for guitar fingerboards, it is a hardwood that provides a smooth playing surface and contribute to the overall tonal character of the guitar.
Overall, this guitar produces a warm, mellow tone with a bright and articulate edge. The unique combination of tonewoods makes for a visually striking instrument.
