    Empress wood is another name for paulownia. A very lightweight, somewhat soft and good sounding tone wood. Looks a lot & sounds a bit like ash. I have an Anderson Tele made of it and if it weren't for the hardware, the body would probably float to the ceiling.

    I bought Amazon's last Mystic Blue Am Std Precision last March. It's perfect.
