    Hi all...

    I have little to no experience with jazz type basses and the traditional sounds of them.

    I've had ash/maple combos in a few of my basses but I'm now considering an Alder/Rosewood build

    Can anyone with more knowledge of these woods and "that" sound volunteer a little info?

    Also, is it not the best idea to go with a burst on an alder bass?

    Thanks TB
