Why did Paco play the same guitar on his show for about 30 years? http://rdiaz.org/rdvideo1353.html


If a luthier tell a person "...this guitar I made is so great..."
is like if my mother tells someone that: "...You know my son is the best guitar player of the world..."

"...When you know a thing, to hold that you know it, and when you do not know a thing, to allow that you do not know it - this is knowledge...." (Confucius)

In my opinion 1) Ebony Fret board, 2) Rosewood Bridge, 3) Cedar Necks, 4) Bone-Saddle, are all unimaginative choices born out of traditional dogmas plus scarcity of ideas which luckily now belong to the past.

Besides ebony been obsolete choice in flamenco guitars is also under extinction, see here:

Ebony Critically Endangered:

There are many factors regarding the process of getting the suitable wood to make guitars. As an example I recently came to know that Ebony is near extinction,
you can read this article from an interesting wood site
http://www.wood-database.com/wood-articles/ebony-dark-outlook-dark-woods/
which although is not specialized in woods for guitars, nonetheless it does have a lot of general information as well as useful scientific information regarding many types of woods.
