Is there any? I heard they are pretty bright, so why dont more manufacturers use it as bodywood?
Do you consider Pedulla a production bass?
I dont know i dont know much about pedulla other than the guy from muse uses em...
i guess anything that isnt custom made can be considered production bass
i've seen some Spector Euros that were maple. Those are production... right?
And the ESP/LTD TA-600 (Tom Araya signature). Maple wings, maple neck thru, and EMG pickups! Brighter than the sun, and twice as fun to play.
Mr Bunga already mentioned Pedulla.
Ibanez used to use maple quite a bit for body wood, but I don't think that they do any more.
They still do on their high end one.
iamlowsound is correct, the SR100xEFM is a maple/walnut neckthru, and I believe either fully flamed maple wings or maple wings & flame maple top.
I prefer the 100xEWN... mahogany wings and a walnut top. Tasty! Too bad the 6 string version isn't available in America.
Fury basses (made in Canada) use Canadian maple wings with a hard rock maple centre strip in all their bodies. Pretty neat basses with amazing pickups. I had two of them for years but got tired of the short scale. The quality was something else though. The company is pretty small only making about 300 instruments a year. very well thought of up here in Canada but 24 frets in a bass with less than a 32" scale length made for a pretty tight feeling bass. They sure do sound good though!
Squier 70s modified jazz bass lol
Fenders Marcus Miller Bass and I believe the new Squire Vintage Modified Jazz Bass Is also maple body at a whopping 250.00
The Marcus Miller is ash, ain't it?
Here are some pictures of my Pedulla Pentabuzz and Alembic Elan 5
Ric. and I believe the gibson ripper was a maple body..I'm not aware of any fender body made of maple,usally ash or alder...a maple bodied jazz would weigh around15 lbs ...and squire usally uses alder,basswood or agithis.to keep price down. I'm sure someone will chime in if I'm wrong..
From Squier site:
Vintage Modified Jazz Bass®
Is “funkify” a word? It is now, baby, thanks to Squier’s new retro-inspired Vintage Modified Jazz Bass guitar!
This handsome natural-finish bass features a soft maple body and one-piece maple neck with sharp-looking black binding and block inlays on the 20-fret maple fingerboard. That soulful sound emanates from a pair of single-coil Duncan Designed™ Jazz Bass pickups; other features include chrome hardware and machine heads, a three-ply pickguard and a four-saddle chrome bridge.
spector legend series.
The Marcus Miller bass is ash.
Older Peavey TL-5 and TL-6 models, as well as their B-Quad line were all maple. I believe solid Maple body wnigs are an option on the Cirrus, but that would not be a "regular production" bass.
