I was over at dpcustom.com looking at the custom basses that guy has put together and it got me thinking.... I live in Florida and we have lots of big cypress trees. Cypress is a very heavy, hard wood, that stains or oils to a very dark finish. I am curious if any of you know of anyone who has used cypress wood as a component in a bass guitar? The though has occurred to me to maybe use some cypress panels as the facing over mahogany or maple in a custom neck-thru instrument. Any ideas on how sound might be affected? Anyone try this?
