    Why is it that some small body guitars have a boxy or nasally tone while others don’t while same type of bracing? Is there anything you can look for or ask about before buying one on-line to avoid the boxy tone?

     

    Thanks

    Be patient, Grasshopper. Richard gets busy.

      No doubt, thought others could answer as well.

    Richard tried to sell me on the H Model in 1981. I thought it had a boxy sound and stuck with the Dread. Now I would go for a Skye for my first choice.
