There are quite a lot of people who think that the lighter a guitar is, the more "lively" it'll sound.BrownID said:Talk to Scot Heatley. In my opinion, Scott is making the best LP type guitars out there right now. You won't find a better LP for the price, let alone at any price.
For something different from the typical LP, try a maple on walnut combination rather than the familiar maple on mahogany? Walnut sounds similar to mahogany, but with more clarity. Also, don’t be stuck on having a heavy guitar. A heavy guitar doesn’t always translate into a “lively” guitar. It is possible to have a very lively guitar at a reasonable weight.
