    The way to do this is to have the two guitars identical in shape, dimensions, construction method, finish, components, electronics, etc. Don't worry about weight.

    Then, have somebody that doesn't know which is which, play the two guitars, through the same amp, to a bunch of folks that have no idea which guitar is which, and see if the panel can identify which is which.

    Then, if your panel agrees which is which, then you've got one data point. This is still slightly better than an anecdote, but it's at best, an isolated data point.

    Then repeat with more identically built guitars, and more people, and you might get enough evidence to support tone wood claims.

    I don't care if people can tell which is which. I only care if they sound different, plane and simple, end of story. :)

    I noticed that, but, that's the kind of stuff that makes you cool about this. You don't take yourself too seriously and that makes it fun. LOL I liked the line, " didn't need those anyway." LOL
