Swamp Ash Fan's Unite !
im a huge swamp ash fan. in fact, if i get a stambaugh custom, it'll b swampash with a green or blue oil finish (a la warwick)
Flamed Bamboo is also nice.
Actually, this new Skjold of mine has me liking spanish cedar (as a body wood) a lot, too. Especially when you have multiple laminates going on.
Nothing like a good piece of ash, is there MM???
You got it Bro
Body: Swamp Ash | Top: None!
My Zon Sonus is simply the swamp ash with a clear laquer on it and she's damn sexy. And while I am generally a simple beauty kind of guy I do also get into maples (flames and quilts can be quite nice).
Calm green ocean... calm green ocean...
All my stress has magically disappeared!
Thats a Beautiful thing !
Body: Swamp ash, ash
Tops: Quilt maple, Spalted maple, dirty ebony, redwood, man too many to list.
My favourite combo (although I dont actually like the basses)exists on the old Ibanez SR1300 series.Mahogany centre with padauk top and back(very deep red colour).
I really like the myrtle burl tops that MTD uses, like on this one...
or this one...
body: black korina - it's the most exotic looking plain tonewood IMO (and it sounds fantastic). poplar is nice too. not a big ash, maple or alder fan. mahogany is ok.
top: meh, not really a fan of overly fancy tops. too much work, too distracting, etc. i used to like spalted maple until i built a bass with it and got a healthy dose of respiratory infection
neck: wenge, bubinga
Whatever top Fodera uses that looks like the wood exploded outwards, I love that...
I like all body woods besides Basswood. But my fav's are Swamp Ash, Mahagony and Maple.
My fav tops are: Spalted maple, Burled maple, Quilted Maple, Curly Maple, Cocobolo (depending), Zebrawood, Rosewood, Macassar Ebony, Ebony, Swamp Ash and Spanish Cedar.
Major Metal, I don't know if I''ve said this before, but your jazz has one of the best Quilted Maple tops I've ever seen (do you have any headstock pics, I don't think I've seen any). I've got green jazz gas cause of you now... Any chance of you bringing that to this years NYC GTG?
I will bring it back out for the GTG this year. I really do enjoy this bass very much , it has recived the bulk of my playing since i got it in September. This is the only pic i have with some headstock in it [/IMG]
Oh, I thought it had a matching headstock. either way, that bass is still sex.
You got that right.
ash for a body, ash by itself is awesome, as for tops i like the darker woods like walnut, mahogany, ebony
