I'm considering building a Warmoth/Status jazz bass (as I can't seem to find a good used price on a Modulus VJ4, or GVJ4). One of my concerns is the body wood. I've narrowed down my selections to Alder with a solid Lake Placid Blue finish, or Swamp Ash with a clear gloss finish. My preference would be to Swamp Ash for its tonal characteristic and its look, however my concern is that swamp ashes relative brightness paired with the definite brightness of a carbon fiber neck might be too much. Just for reference I'll be equipping this bass with DiMarzio Model J's which aren't necessarily the brightest pickups in the world. So what does talkbass think? Swamp Ash too bright for a carbon fiber neck jazz bass with DiMarzio Model J pickups? Would alder be the better choice?
