    I don't understand. What is ash body
  5. Ah, youz guyz...

    side, they're taking the piss because you should have spell-checked before posting. The diff is that the non-ash model has a body made of Alder, instead of ash. mellower sound, apparently...

    Guys, quit making fun of those who happen to know less than you do. You are here to help out.

    side: it's just a question of what kind of wood the body is made of. If it's not ash it's alder.

    Ok, sorry. :(

    Ash: Has slightly less mids with more highs and lows.
    Alder: Has more of a high mid sound.

    Your results may very but those definitions are usually the general consensus.

    Personally, I couldn't really tell the difference, but that just may have been the particular Jazz's I was playing.

    Hope this helps. ;)

    One other thing, ash usually has a more defined wood grain appearance.
