I will keep that in mind. I once found a website of man that watched for old barns being torn down and he was salvaging pine boards for guitar bodies. The theory is that it takes decades for pine to truly be dry of resin and once it is in that state, the pine is an exceptional tone wood. The drawback is the way that it splits and dents so easily.
I have 2 G&L guitars, both made with swamp ash and the craftsmanship is amazing. Leo Fender is quoted as saying that with G&L, he had perfected his 2 first designs as much as he could. They definitely don't scrimp on the woodworkiing
If you were to Google the name Paul Reed Smith, you would find an American guitar co. in Maryland that has some of the finest woodworkers. There is a multi-part series on You Tube of his factory that is interesting to watch the care and detail that is taken on their products
