Hey Guys I am on the start of a new mission and i.e getting my Custom Bass made. I came up with couple of wood types for the bass and other things to help it, However im not sure if this Combination might work for me. So ill need info or feedback on your experiences with these Specs. I play Metal mostly and also play Funk and Blues. 6 String Neck thru Bass Body wood- Alder Sides with Walnut top. (Planning on creating chambers in the body to reduce weight)Will doin this effect my Tone a lot?? Neck wood- 3 Pc Maple. Fingerboard- Ebony. I have a Local Luthier who makes some custom basses. so need to know by getting these wood types is it going to work for me...and the balance of the bass, Since the wood types are Heavy, ive Decided to create Chambers in the wings to cut off some weight. Your reviews and talks will be appreciated.
