He shows examples of back-and-side and soundboard woods, and gives his impressions of how each affects the overall tone of a guitar. He touches on walnut, African blackwood, Honduras rosewood, and Brazilian rosewood for back and sides, and Adirondack and Sitka spruce, redwood, and mahogany for soundboard woods. He also talks about what he would use if he were building a guitar for himself. It's a deep and nuanced overview of guitar tonewoods commonly used today.
