What kind of Ash do they have in Asia, "Swamp" [lighter] or "Hard Northern" [heavier]? Both sound goood. Specifically, I'd like to know what is typically used in Korea? From what I know [not much], Swamp Ash doesn't grow in the Eastern Hemisphere. This leads me to assume that if an Asian bass is labeled "Ash", it more specifically is the "Hard Northern" Ash? I suppose they could import Swamp Ash, but wouldn't that defeat the purpose of having a more economical instrument?
