    I am thinking of buying this bass for someone I know. However, I have 1 question- everywhere I look, even on Yamaha's website, the body core wood is listed as " alder, mahogany, agathis, or nato." When you order one is there a way to choose or is it random. I want this person to have a quality instrument (IME agathis and nato are generally poor quality woods) so I'd much rather his bass have an alder or mahogany body. Does anyone know if its random or not?
