Mahogany/Spruce tops are very beautiful sounding guitars. These are some of the best woods for resonator guitar construction.

First these are beautiful instruments.  I have a question about Spruce in general for tops.

Interesting article about Spruce in Bluegrass unlimited this month.

How much difference in sound does the top make and Spruce versus other woods like Maple.

I don't see a lot of spruce tops on instruments, except Rob Ickes.

Should we be asking for it?

I'm not going to post a detailed answer on this because if you ask 3 different people about sound, you're going to get 3 completly different answers. In my humble opinion, spruce gives the guitar a nice sound, looks nice, and tends to give the guitar a nice balanced tone.
