Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

    Currently I'm having a Warmoth 5 string P bass body built. This will be joined with a Warmoth Maple/Maple neck. I wanted to make sure that Alder (which is what I selected) is one of the best tonewoods for fingerstyle playing. I do no picking or slap/pop. Your opinions are appreciated.
    Thanks,

    You might get a lot more response in Basses forum. In fact, I think there's an ash vs. alder thread running right now. It's a common subject there, take a look.

    Unless you were specifically looking for luthiers' opinions.
