    Hey there. I'm in the process of building a warmoth jazz bass, and was wondering if any of you have used Goncalo Alves in the past and know what its tonal characteristics are. I'm thinking of using it as for the neck, I just love the brown streaks. Classy look. Though seeing as tone is king, thought I'd ask. I've seen it used in pistol grips before, but that doesn't give much hint to the tone of it.
