|I'm thinking of getting a guthrie govan set neck but am wondering about the natural satin finish. Suhr guitars are known for their beautiful paint/finish work and every time I play my Standard, I notice how awesome it looks!
With just a stain and satin finish, although the guitar looks cool, it definitely doesn't look as nice as a flame maple top, etc.
What comments would you guys make about the difference in tone in a natural wood guitar like the GG set neck vs the following:
1. the same guitar with a maple top and clear coat.
2. the same guitar without a maple top, just mahogany body with a clear coat?
