Lime Vs. Basswood

Recommended Posts

I've heard that basswood and lime are pretty much the same thing (i'm talking american basswood and european lime). So, if i made two guitars identical except from the body wood, one in each of these woods, would i be able to tell the difference?


any help would be good :D

They're not exactly the same species (they're both Tilia, one's Americana and the other one something else), and my impression is that Euro's a little heavier/harder, but not by much at all. Honestly, methinks they'd be pretty much idential.

(Ironic thing of the day: basswood is cheaper than euro lime, despite being imported)
