That's fairly thick so I'd think it will have an effect on the tone. I've actually played a bass with a thick Amboyna Burl top and it was fairly midrangey. I think it had a Black Limba body. More midrange.
Throw in a Wenge neck with Maple board to add brightness and I'd expect strong low mids with bright highs without a lot of depth. Just a guess based on what I've experienced. The Pope will give you tweakability so that's a plus. Never been crazy about Aeros.
Good luck with build, Chris does excellent work, I've owned four so far. BTW how did you arrive at these specs?
