Cherry For Bass Body?

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine is wanting to build a Bass body from Cherry? Any comments/input on tone or stability? I am not familliar enough with Cherry or its properties to give him any advice.


Bluetic :D:D

My prayers are with the friends and loved ones of the victims of terrorism in the UK. God bless you.

Yes, it is very stable as well. I like it for making jigs and such with for that reason. And it's around the same weight as mahogany or soft maple. Not exactly basswood, but not unbearable, either. And yeah, it's spendy, at least for a domestic ( north america ) wood. Even in the log, it's around a buck a board foot for anything decent.
