Type Of Wood For Plug In Solid-body Electric?

Recommended Posts

Bought a $30 Craigslist special, the wood that one of the trem posts sits in is cracked and falling out into the trem cavity. I'm going to attempt a repair like this, but would like to be able to use something from Lowe's this weekend (I don't think they carry basswood). Ibanez catalog from 1986 says the body is basswood. Can I use something like poplar for the plug without a problem?
