How would a jazzbass sound if you shanged the bodywood to mahogany or korina? This is what caught my atention on Warmoth´s site: White Korina is a medium to heavy weight wood. The tone is very similar to Mahogany. It features a light yellow/green color which looks great with a yellow tinted finish. This is a great wood for bass guitars. Korina has a naturally waxy feel to it. Oil finished work well on this wood.
