Examples of 6-string acoustic guitars:
Paul prefers to use slabs of aged and semi-rare wood on his guitars. For example, a land development project in 1980 cut down and disposed of many trees. Paul and his father knew of an old cherry tree on that plot and cut it down so that it would not go to waste. Paul has made about 20 instruments from that tree.
According to Paul, the interesting thing about dead wood is that its molecular structure changes over time, and the wood actually crystallizes (think petrified forest). While working with this wood is a lot more difficult, the benefit of using this wood on acoustic guitars is that the sound quality of the guitar has higher resonance and clarity, because the sound waves bounce off of the harder surfaces rather than being absorbed.
The different parts of the acoustic guitars are usually made out of different materials. Here are some of the options for materials on the different parts of the acoustic guitar:
