The "Cedar Bronze"
« Reply #15 on: October 19, 2007, 08:02:42 AM »
just a quick question for anyone who owns a cedar-bronze, but how soft is the body wood??

I mean, I am aware that the terms "softwood" and "hardwood" are not always accurate descriptors of the density of the actual wood, but cedar is generally quite soft...

Does the CB appear to have some kind of grain filler or something to make it harder??

With the clearcoat on it the surface has the harness of the paint just like any guitar. The wood  underneath is fairly soft as is the Sitka on the Artist,Concert/Bronze and Spanish/Nylon Flys. Cedar is a little softer than Sitka and you can mark it with your fingernail but don't let it fool you it's very stiff.

And back of the body is covered with hard candy coating just like a M&M.[:o)]

I mean carbon/glass epoxy that's candy to me.[;)]

Agreed -- if you were to rout the guitar or do other mods, I would be careful, but for general handling, there is no problem. The guitar is extremely light.

I don't find the guitar to be delicate to handle at all but I'm very careful with mine as I am with all my guitars.

Do a search on "My Custom Signature" for the whole discussion. Here's what we had --


P0612048 JF Dana - Natural
P0612049 -- Chris - Natural

P0612051 Auburn - Natural
P0612052 Charlie - Natural

We were betting the sunburst was the missing "50".

BTW -- I think this is the same bronze that was on ebay back in August and the guy wouldn't give me the serial number then either


Finally -- the missing 50 shows up (and wrong, not a the Sunburst) --

Really good looking - and very clever system for cutting. I love the cedar/walnut combo and I hope I get to see this one in Santa Barbara
