Northern Ash or Southern Ash?

  1. I realize Northern Ash is much more dense and heavy, but what give a better tone?

    Define better tone.
  3. Which one gives a tighter and thicker low end? Which one gives warmer and fuller mids? Which one gives cleaner highs?
  4. I think that depends on the individual board more than anything.

    Where do you intend to use it?

    Neck? Body? Bolt-on? Set neck? Neckthru? etc

    It all depends on usage and...the individual plank.
