Pics or it's a Daisy guitar!
Indeed, I have one of those. In Korina. So it gets all kinds of variations:
Rosie Soapy McKorina
Korina Rosie McSoapy
McRosie Soapy Korina
Not sure what the "official" (lol) forum nickname is - could be one of those, could be something else.
I didn’t go back and read this whole post.
When exactly did Crackwood cease being just Brazilian rosewood necks and become any type of rosewood used for a neck?
I had assumed it referred to the idea that once you try a rosewood neck guitar and you like it, then it becomes an addiction to get more and more, just like crack cocaine is so much more addictive than regular cocaine (according to the experts, I dunno, I've tried neither, never want to). So PRS guitars are addictive enough, but adding a RW neck is turning them into "crack".It’s a ridiculous term in the first place. I guess you could apply it to many hardwoods conducive to checking as it dries.
Beautiful guitar! I think a fair amount of the brightness comes from the Ebony fretboard.. if you could AB an all rosewood fingerboard and neck I think you’ll find that it wouldn’t be quite as brightI have this combo on my PS SC250... Madagascar rosewood neck with ebony board. I'm not certain how much it effects "tone"... but maybe it brings a bit more brightness to the mids I "hear" with the solid rosewood neck. Piano-like I hear some comparisons. Regardless, It's the sum of its parts and this one is a keeper!
