Pawnshop prize, stripped shoddy finish, need wood identification.

The dark stripes look like walnut and the wings look like swamp ash. The middle might be maple. Not sure anout the other one.
I'm mainly wondering about the wings. The yellow and white bits look like maple up close. I don't think the wings are swamp ash?
From the centre out I reckon maple, walnut, beech and then ash...
To me, the grain looks far too tight in the wings to be Swamp Ash.
I'm really not sure what it is, however.
Yeah, that's what I'm thinking
Actually, would this get better response in the Luthiers forum? If it belongs there, please move it, thanks.
Yep. I thought so too.
Probably alder, eh?
Nup. Doesn't look like it at all IMO.
Yeah, s'not alder.
it could be bass wood....no pun intended
If the body is heavy it could be Northern Ash.
