WOOD & TONE

Popular Mechanics (South Africa) - - Driving -

David Gil­mour An alder body gives Gil­mour a warm, bal­anced sound he can elec­tron­i­cally ma­nip­u­late into Pink Floyd psychedelia.

Brent Hinds Mastodon’s bonecrunch­ing sound comes from the dark, full-bod­ied growl of Hinds’s ma­hogany axe.

BB King King’s gui­tar, “Lu­cille”, mixed maple, which can be overly bright, with po­plar, which tem­pers the tone.

Wes Mont­gomery The arched spruce top of Mont­gomery’s gui­tar lent it the re­spon­sive, emo­tive sound of his in­flu­en­tial jazz record­ings.
