Have any of you played both the maple and Ickes models of the new Nati-Horns?
I know that the maple is brighter than the mahogany, but how does the Ickes compare to the maple in terms of tone, volume, etc.
The Ickes model is priced significantly higher than the other two...I would imagine that the purfling and different tone woods account for some of the price difference...
I posted a new video to the Slide Guitar Demo Series on my site. This weeks featured guitar is a quilted maple Beard E Model.
Here's a link to check it out.
How do you think it compares to the Scheerhorns and Blackbeard?
Thanks for checking it out,
FYI: There is a Benoit Maple reso for sale at the Guitar Center in Atlanta GA USA. "R" body size, soundwell, nice amber stain, beautiful red purfling and nice headstock inlay. Strings were dead, but nice sounding high B and D. Priced at $1799.
Carroll Benoit is an artist. There are many fine builders, but no one builds a prettier guitar than Carroll. If you're in the area, check it out.
