Alder vs Mahogany on a bolt neck axe

Recommended Posts

Hi. Im in the process of putting together my first guitar. It will strat bodied with a bolt on ebony boarded maple neck. It will have 2 humbuckers and a solid brass vintage style tremelo. I would love it to be a very les paul sounding guitar and what i mean is warm and sustaining especially from the neck pick up. Looking to santana type/peter green typ tones here and vh from the bridge! Yes, i know im asking alot.

So, will a mahogany body give me that sustain that im looking for or does it not matter because it is not a set neck? If it doesnt make a deifference should i just get the less expensive alder neck?
