“Call me last.”
For decades, that phrase has been the calling card of vintage guitar buyer David Davidson.
“When a company like Gibson or Fender got wood for guitars, they were buying wood that was dried and cured naturally over years or even decades,” he says. “That wood was hand-picked, it was light, it was resonant. What you find is that now we have much more production, and we can’t wait. What happens now is that manufacturers force-dry their woods. There’s a big difference.”
