Subject: RE: Wanted: Gibson J-45 or J-50
In my store, in "most" product lines, I consistently get better sounding mahogany guitars, rather than rosewood, in certain price ranges. From entry level to about $1000.00 suggested retail, you are much more likely to get surprisingly good mahogany guitars. I don't know why, but that's what I routinely see.
    I carry several lines of guitars: Ventura, Wechter, Stanford, Eastman, and Santac Cruz. The entry level Venturas are good examples of this.
