While we all are aware of combinations like Ash and Maple, Walnut and Alder, ect. I was wondering how you decide on new and different wood combinations, or even if the wood would make a good bass? For instance, Mike Tobias uses Tulipwood, something I've never really seen used in basses. While we all are aware of combinations like Ash and Maple, Walnut and Alder, ect, w Do you just look at a wood and go "That'd make a good bass"? or are there steps to consider when trying a new wood out on a bass? I ask, because it would seem to me a waste of time and resources to just up and make a bass that might sound, well, less than desirable. So how do you select "new" woods? Thanks.
