Do increased laminations decrease reverberations?

    My question is just that. Say you have a thirteen piece neck (i love the look of high piece necks) and compare it to a bass with 3 piece neck in a solid body, will the high pieces of neck and body lamenates decrease the sonic quality of a bass?

    Scientifically it seems like it should. Good thing I'm no scientist.
  2. Are you asking about sound quality? Irrelevant, that's subjective. In terms of absorbing or amplifying frequencies, different woods and laminates do different things to the sound. The mechanical transfer of sound from particle to particle is completely dependant on materials it goes through. Once again it will be subjective on the result.

    As for attack speed, it will travel faster in denser materials is the simplest adage. I'm not sure how close it would be between the different woods or how noticible it would be tho....*shrug*
