Has anyone tried this acoustics they are under guitarfetish.com.
Ive been reading very good things about them. Also what is the difference between rosewood and mahogany?
Check out this quick review of tonewoods for back and sides for a description:
Now, as to Xaviere acoustics - there have been some purchased by people on here, and I've researched them a bit. From what I've read, they are a bit hit-or-miss on the QC and the setup - you might get lucky and get an ok one. However, this is another case of a company (GuitarFetish) going over to China to have a "guitar maker" make a generic guitar for them with an individualized headstock and name. IMHO, nothing wrong with that, per se, as a business model; however, if you want to purchase an instrument, you would be better off with a Seagull (or any Godin acoustic), Walden, Eastman, Blueridge, Wechter, or even Recording King...
Walden, in particular, provides excellent value for the money...IMHO
Ok thank you for your information. What do you think of Grestch?
Gretsch? Do you mean these guys:
I don't know much about these, but their archtops are well-regarded - and I love the soundhole on these!
Here's a link to the Gretsch acoustics: http://www.gretschguitars.com/products?section=acoustics
For archtops, the Godin 5th Avenue variations and Eastmans and Loars are also very nice...
