    All this talk about DP is going to make me order a 4-string from Dave. But I'm not sure what woods to get I want quilted maple and a ebony finger board but I'm not certin on anything else to get.
  2. What sound are you going for? What kind of music do you play or want to play? There are many here very knowledgable a regarding the impact different woods have on the tone. They've certainly helped me make the right decision.

    I would also recommend you talk (actually email) to Dave about what you're trying to achieve sonically. He'll steer you in the right direction.

    The sound that I like is vintage with a little modern snap added.

    I would go for a maple neck and an alder back, or perhaps a wenge/maple/wenge neck and a swamp ash back, if you want a little more bite.
