W7 Series
« on: July 20, 2012, 12:36:47 PM »
I continue to love the W7 series guitar I got last year.  It is the one with the glossy cherry finish.  I know that this year they have changed it to a mat finish but I really think this is one of the best guitars out there for the money.  I really urge folks to check it out

Cheers,

I agree, the newer series stuff doesn't seem to be making many inroads with us here on the forum....perhaps Facebook has taken all the "newer" possible posters?

At any rate, I constantly mention how much I like my new WMJ11S....absolutely a joy to play, great sound, nice details like bindings on the fretboard and the headplate, bone nut and saddle.

It looks like "heft", for lack of a better term, is sacrificed in the newer lines, I keep hearing how much lighter the new models are compared to the WD series and the D10 series in particular.  I think there may be a silver lining in there, though...the thinner the woods, the lighter, but also the easier for the strings to set them into vibration.

I'll be interested in seeing if the newer lighter models enjoy the same durability as the heavier models of the past.

Cheers!

Interesting points you bring up.  I really think the heavier the better but I continue to see what's out there.

Generally lighter guitars are more resonant.  As Dugly notes, the thinner the top the easier it will vibrate.  Taylor and some of the older Gibson acoustics are known for being very light and resonant.  Guild on the other hand is known for rather hefty acoustic guitars.  Scalloping the braces, voicing the tops, all these techinques are about reducing mass (and weight) in order to get more tone, volume and presence.
