What body woods do you like?
I put the only vote so far, ash, but im kinda mad, i like northern ash (the heavy stuff), swamp ash is okay, but I love the heavy P's from the 70's
Hehe, what I mean with the (Swamp Ash) and the (Figured) parenthesis , is to include those in the same option.
So ASH or Swamp Ash or White Ash , etc .. are included in the family of ASH.
There are not many options.. (because 10 is the limit, so i had to do that)
I know ya' can't swing a dead dingo down under without hittin'
a Bluegum, but I still think it's kinda' cool. Golden, honey color and
BIG ol' hunks, like the one piece top on my R/A .
Here's a raw slab of "Southern Fiddleback" and some "Southern"
sliced up for a tabletop ...
Bigger pics ~
Wow! I got my first response bumped. I thought it was in good taste. Is there some kind of 3 strikes and you're out deal, like, do I have a police record or something now?
My apologies to the powers that be.
SOMEONE'S gotta do this..
Huh huh.. you said "wood".. huh huh..
Thanx Dave! . I was lookin' all over for a dang wav file last nite/this mornin',
but couldn't find one. It took long enough findin' those mediocre pics of Bluegum .
i would have have to say may best wood is ....... morning!
aaaah that was lame!
no reason to tell me i know its lame!
fiddleback, hmmm...is that the same as australian black acacia?
i'm considering some for a bass top i'm making.
Hey Fred . I think black acacia and bluegum are two different puppies.
To tell ya' the truth, I'm in Texas - if it ain't Mesquite ...
There's a pic of B/A here ==> http://www.schrammguitars.com/tonewoods.html .
It looks like a Cedar whereas Bluegum's more like maple.
There are some gen-oo-ine Aussie folks here at TB.
One of `em took me to school the last time I mentioned Bluegum .
i'm the only one for walnut? wow.
I definetly love walnut, and the figured is -worthy.
Who voted for Luthite???
id rather have poplar over luthite...what are they thinking making a plastic bass, thats obsurd to me
and those DAMNED plastic necks!!!! what the hell?
and what blasphemer ever thought of impregnating resin into birch for a fretboard!?!?!?
are these luthiers BORED OR WHAT?!?!?
Both of my C.Curbows Are made of Luthite, and It is not "plastic" it is more like a solid porous clay material, wich sounds great.
About the Birch impregnated with Phenolic resins Neck, Fretboards and bodies.... (Wich is called ROCKWOOD in Curbow Basses, and Pakka for other purposes) is one of the greates combinations of materials.
That is used by Rick Turner some times, and Greg Curbow uses it in all his basses (for the neck)
It stands over Graphite, sounds better, it is more stable than any kind of wood, and looks great too.
ifabara: i was kidding, i'm a proud owner of one of them darned plastic necked basses.
hey, for a GREAT wood chart, check out:
tons of info!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Big fan of Maple bodies (natural, painted, whatever, just like maple) Maple necks with rosewood fretboards.
you forgot mesquite .....
