    Are there any good websites with information on tonalities of woods?

    Here is a great article by Michael Tobias. It's about woods and other matters of bass construction. It's very educational.

    Also, this page from Warmoth's website gives a good, quick, and to the point description of some woods that are commonly used in guitars and basses. At the left near the top, click on a button that says "Wood Descriptions." I like to use it for a quick reference.

    Look through the threads on this forum. There has been a lot of discussion about the various woods that are used to build basses
