Probably the simple truth, there is a beauty to wood that is undeniable. Alistairs favorite guitars are his wood veneers. That probably alone says a lot. Ironically I find them not really to my liking cause I truly think in the bright light his reflective weave is as good as it gets on stage. And I do love peoples reaction to how a guitar sound comes out of something so different from what they are used to seeing.
