great bass, what is the wood of the body (not the top) ?
Looks like flamed maple. But I'm usually wrong.
The back is flamed maple, the body looks to be..hmm
Thats a hard one. My guess is splated maple, any other pics of it?
Looks like a deeply grained swamp ash to my eyes. But I'm no expert.
I'd maybe second the 'dark grained ash' guess...
might be walnut, though... not too much to judge from.
The core wood looks to be black limba (body shape looke to be a Benavente. If so it probably is. Chris uses that wood a lot)...
The cap wood is flamed maple most likely.. Isn't that particular type of figuring (lateral streaking) called "fiddleback"?
Body is black limba/korina. The top..err.. bottom is obviously flamed maple.
Black Limba on the body for sure, and I'm going to throw out there that the back of the bass may be Flamed Myrtle. The figuring of that bass looks just like the top of my MTD 535 which is Flamed Myrtle.
It's definatly flame maple.
Korina body with figured Anigre cap is my guess.
The body is most deffinantly black limba, the back could be flammed maple and prolly is, but it could also be anigre, or even a few others. Maple is the easiest flame figure to find, and prolly cheapest of them as well, so more than likely thats what it is.
That back is flamed anigre. Good call.
I am not sure about the back wood. 3 options come to mind but there maybe others, Maple, Myrtle and sycamore.
i mean the wood of the body itself, not the backwood, seems like flamed/quilted maple to me, but i mean the wood 'under' it.
it's black limba?
The body is black Limba.
I don't know about that... you sure?!?
I belive it is.
LOL..hilarious..people still guessing after Chris gave the answer...ROTFL.
