Will, thanks for taking the time (which is valuable) to make sense and unpack the issues behind the industry and cultural ideologies that permeate the world of guitars. It’s not an easy road to take when you’re facing the machine so I applaud your bravery and insight. It’s refreshing to see someone who isn’t posting an internet-assembled opinion as empirical evidence and debate-ending fact. Good work, mate. Now, is it compression waves, transverse waves or tone wood that’s causing global warming? ;) Keep up the education and great work.
