Some of you may have seen my other thread where I was trying to decide which top to get. I have a question for you now. This bass body will most likely have the following: 1/4" spalted beech top 1/16" wenge accent strip mahagony back (or core, or whatever you want to call it) The question is: Is mahagony too muddy or dark sounding? I have never played a bass with a mahagony body, but I can't pass up this beautiful piece of wood. I'm not sure what the beech will do for it. Those of you who have used or played a mahagony bodied bass, please chime in. P.S. Vote in the thread I linked above.
