The answer is, as it always is with natural materials, “it depends.”

I’ve seen sets that looked wonderful and straight grained that didn’t sound that great and wood that looked wildly unstable that did.   It’s about choosing the right material and the right builder – and, honestly, the player’s touch has a lot to do with it.  Listen to Lawrence Juber – I’ve heard him perform on a variety of his Martin OM models with different b/s woods from Braz to Indian to Madrose to whatever else, and he always sounds like himself.
