    3) Slab style is warmer, round lam is brighter. It's all good, just need to take that into account when building the instrument. Slab board on a lighter body is going to sound woofy...and if you're looking for mids and highs, you're gonna miss it.

    thank you, Mike...much appreciated.

    Btw...that Woodstock guitar story is cool.
