Thanks iim7v7IM7,

My personal preference is a very lightweight guitar. I like the physical feedback of a vibrating guitar. I also prefer the feel and surround sound I get from a very active back. Additionally, a very active back lowers the body resonance for a deeper bass.

Many guitar builders go for the much more rigid sides for a variety of reasons and I get that. In fact, I have argued those advantages and build that type of guitar as well. Certainly, that setup does not preclude having a very active back but, again my personal preference is to go for the lightest guitar.

It is not a matter of one being better than the other it is which do you prefer to play?

Thanks Again!
