I find that some poplar burl tops look really good, if the combination of figuring + finish + guitar style work well together. Ultimately though, if you were to show me 10 of the same guitar model (e.g. RG1070PBZ), I would probably hate about 5, really like 1 or 2, and think the others look mediocre.Yep, tree cancer
To me, it's mostly poplar and buckeye burl that I find as eyesores. I think maple burl and walnut burl can look bloody amazing
regarding the topic; can't add much more. Jason Richardson JPSomething with the Buckeye Top still looks incredible to me, and I really like most Premiums with poplar tops, but the shit I been seeing from low/mid quality instruments has been terrible
Usually hate burls, but this is kind of working for me.
There is something about it that looks so cheesy to me after a while. There are very few I think I’d enjoy looking at every day. Disappointing that they’re becoming the only options for certain models in some cases.
