Does Guitar Color Affect Tone!

Does Guitar Color Affect Tone!

We're here to discuss one of the most asked questions that we get here at the store and online: how does the color of a guitar change the tone? While some (Cooper) might say NO, some (Billy Corgan) might say YES, and others (Chris) might say MAYBE, we are discussing all the factors that might be correlated to finish affecting tone. Between these two Stratocasters of different finishes, do you hear a difference? Tell us all your thoughts on if color and tone are related!

Fender American Pro II HSS vs. SSS The Difference a Humbucker Makes

Today we're looking at a couple great Fender Stratocasters from the American Professional II series-- one of which has three single coils (SSS) and the other has 2 single coils and a humbucker (HSS). The addition of the humbucker adds a whole new sonic palette that is available to the Stratocaster, but is that tone right for you?

Taylor AD17 vs 317e : Take a Look at the Most Affordable USA-Made Taylor.

This comparison was a no brainer for us, and for many of you-- since the inclusion of the American Dream series in Taylor's lineup, we've wanted to compare it to the relatively-new 317e, which is another great Grand Pacific body style guitar. Both of these guitars are American made round-shoulder dreadnoughts with V-Class bracing; however, their wood pairings and adornments differ slightly. The AD17 utilizes a spruce and ovangkol pairing, while the 317e uses spruce and sapele.
