Yup. Fender announced a bit back that they would stop using ASH wood in their guitars. this is a HUGE change as Fender has been using SWAMP ASH as it's main wood since the Titanic sank, or thereabouts. With all of the restrictions on woods and environmentalism, I think we may start seeing fabricated materials make their way in to guitar builds. Even things like Carbon Fiber are starting to be seen in guitars. As technology advances and carbon fiber gets easier to produce and work with, (hopefully) I dare say we will start seeing it and other "non tree" materials used more often in various things including instruments.

I understand the environment concern. But it’s such à pleasure to shape à piece of wood into a guitar!

Aristides guitars have been making instruments from Richlite instead of wood.

Richlite is an incredibly durable, extremely versatile, and highly sustainable material made from resin-infused paper. It works similar to a dense hardwood and can be easily milled, sanded, routed, and joined.

Since Indonasia became a location for affordable guitars, there have been quite a few new wood types introduced.

These are widely accept by the modern guitar community but I think the problem is with traditional guitar design and the expected sound from them.

The good news from all of this is that I think we will finally see more innovation in terms of guitar construction/design. As raw materials continue to become scarce, builders will have no choice but to find other ways to build guitars. I am optimistic to see what people come up with. Necessity is the mother of invention after all smile.gif
