    Does anyone know how a padauk body will sound??
    On a 1993 sr/1305
  2. Impossible to say. That is one variable amongst many that work together as a system. If you want to try to determine the significance of one variable, at the very least, you need to figure out what the others are first.

    do you know much about ibanez basses back in 1993?
  4. padauk is the most melancholy of all tonewoods
  5. Padauk sounds pretty podunk, imo. :D
  6. I own a 1992 Ibanez SR885. The top and back are padauk.

    It sounds like a bass. lol actually I've owned it for 19 years and it still sounds great.

    High qaulity padauk tends to be very resonant with voice char similiar to rosewood.
