How do I tell if my bass is alder or ash wood?
wood grain. ( ash has more grain_
ash tends to be heavier. (is your bass over 10 lbs?)
weighs about 9 lbs
Do you have a pic you could post? What color is it? If it's natural, it's probably ash.
Traditionally, Natural finished ones were ash, but solids or sunbursts were done in Alder. I don't know about the dark years of the Mid to late 70's though. Those were also the years of 'northern hard ash' as opposed to the lighter swamp ash that was much prized in the early Fender instruments.
What are boat anchors made out of?
Touche good man, touche
