Hey this is my first post here.
So, I've been looking at some Yairi's. And on some, like the WY1K have figured koa back and sides. What does figured mean? Is it solid? Is it a step above AAAA Wood?
figured wood just refers to the grain pattern of the wood -- it doesn't have anything to do with the quality or whether the wood is solid or laminated. You can check the guitar specs for that info. It's really just a matter of what you like to look at.
