So I've finally found someone bold enough to commission a bass off me, and I'm having trouble deciding on a top-wood selection. I'd appreciate some input/advice, as my mind is going crazy in the wood selection process for this one. Here's the specs: the neck is a 5-piece laminate of maple/macassar ebony... the body 'core' I have on hand is canary wood. (1" thick) I was thinking of using a calico padauk bookmatched back, which I think will look nice against the canarywood core. It will have a black veneer laminate between the padauk back and canary core. For a fretboard, I have a nice pre-slotted padauk board on hand. I have no idea what to use for the top! The woods I have on hand are: (see pics) Bocote Quilted maple bookmatch Spruce I'd like to use something I have on hand, and I'm leaning towards the bocote or spruce, as I think the quilted maple will look weird against the flame maple neck (the maple on the neck is a little more 'white' than the quilted top as well). But then the spruce isn't the same shade of white either.... Do you think the bocote would look disgusting? Suggest other woods?
