What is a bookmatched guitar. I see guitars with bookmatched mahagony. What is its advantages and disadvantages.
it means that a piece of figured wood has been cut in half so the grain is symmetrical.

EDIT: I doubt it's bookmatched mahogany, it might be a bookmatched maple top on a mahogany body but afaik you wouldn't do it for a non figured wood.


that first section shows the bookmatching.

You cut the block in half and open it like a book. The grains lines up but they'll offset sometimes.

And TS, I also doubt it's mahogany.

Wow... that looks... tasty.

It'll only affect looks and has no affect on tone as far as I know.
