    That headline is a bit of a red herring, since the main takeaway was this...

    "Overall our results suggest that the back wood has a negligible effect on the sound quality and playability of an acoustic guitar, and that cheaper and sustainable woods can be used as substitutes of expensive and endangered woods without loss of sound quality," says Lancaster's Prof. Christopher Plack.
    ...which has been know for centuries. Antonio de Torres Jurado proved this in the nineteenth century by building a guitar with papier-mâché back and sides.

    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.
