ChrisSawyer Posted May 24, 2018 Report Share Posted May 24, 2018 Hi everyone, So I'm in my first build and I can't decide on what wood to use for the body. I've made a rosewood neck, I have a dark ziricote top, and I think I would like very very pale wood for the body to clash and bring it the other two woods and the rosewood back plates im making. I know there's a big debate on tone woods, I was told that the wood probably won't make a huge difference in sound but if you believe it will, I'm going to be using tremonti pickups and I'm looking for a tremonti ish tone. I was originally thinking mahogany because that's kind of a standard and it's what the tremonti sig prs is made of but obviously that isn't pale. I was recommended swamp Ash but I worry that it would make the guitar too light, I want a bulky heavy guitar. Sorry for all the unorganised rambling, any help would be appreciated.
