    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.
