One of the key differences between the b2 and b1 is the b2’s incorporation of a solid spruce soundboard (as opposed to the b1’s laminated soundboard), and this makes a huge difference to the sound, ensuring that the b2 has a far fuller and more singing sound across its range. This is further enhanced by its larger cabinet, which effectively acts as a sound chamber from which the sound can resonate more sonorously.
