Due to the extinction of some wood species used to manufacture guitars, there is a trend to search new alternative materials with the same acoustic performance. There is a wide range of tonewoods: ebony, rosewood, yellow and red cedar, mongoy and sapelli, among others. These woods have high resonance qualities and the requirements are both acoustical and mechanical. In this work, alternative composite materials have been manufactured to compare dynamic and psychoacoustic parameters with the commonly used woods. This comparison will allow to conclude the possibility of using these materials as substitutive of tonewoods.
