    Has anyone used either of these woods to build a solid body bass guitar? Any ideas on how that might sound? Thanks :bassist:
  2. I am currently building 5 bodies all out of different woods, pine, birch, maple, willow and aspen. This is a long-term project so I have no idea when I will get these basses together for a sound-check...
    But a wild guess would be that willow and spruce bodies are very similar to basswood and/or alder.
