I'm about to order a bass from Dave Pushic, and I've ironed out almost all the specs with him. Right now its a 5 string with a 5 piece maple/wenge neck-through with quilted maple top, birdseye maple fretboard and alder body. Dave P suggested mahogany as the body wood. What do you guys think? I have experience with alder (j-bass) and like it, but don't have any with mahogany. Also, cosmetically mahogany would contrast the quilted maple top a lot more than the alder would, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I'm looking for a versatile instrument, from big fat vintage sounds to modern hifi grand piano sounds. I just want some input from the rest of you talkbassers before I finalize my plans.
