Hi all, I've been reading a thread on another bass forum discussing US Swamp-ash is a very soft wood and is prone to easily getting it damaged. Just like to ask, if i get a warwick US swamp-ash corvette in laquer, would this solve the problem of the wood prone to easy damage or would it be the same? Example: I have a Yamaha RBX374 made from Alder, it's taken some knocks here and there, but when i look at the place it got knocked at, there is no chips or dings. Would this be the same for a laquered US swamp-ash or is it more prone to damage compared to other woods even though it is laqured and protected by gloss? Thanks all.
