What’s in wood? Well, for one thing, the type of wood changes the tone a guitar produces, which makes these new reclaimed wood guitars ($2500+) from Fender worth checking out. They’re doing the Stratocaster in both reclaimed (i.e., it used to be something else) pine and redwood, and the Telecaster in pine. Some of the wood apparently dates back to the 1850s. Probably worth a trip to the local guitar shop, we think.
