Fender basses with ash bodies.

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by count_funkula, Nov 13, 2001.

  1. Does Fender use Northern Hard Ash or Swamp Ash on their basses with clear finishes? Seems like the P bass I picked up recently at GC was very heavy which leads me to believe it was hard ash.

    Any ideas?

    Swamp Ash, they used Northern Hard in the 70s.
