Favorite Tone/Cosmetic Wood
I've recently decided that I'm going to start planning my first guitar build (after I complete my custom work station build that I posted a few weeks back, which should start soon). I've never built anything other than furniture, so this should be an interesting adventure. Can't wait to document it.
I figured this would be a good time to fire up a conversation about what everyone's favorite woods are. What's your favorite for tone? What's your favorite for looks? Favorite body woods? Favorite neck woods? Favorite combinations? Favorite finish? Anything that has to do with wood!
I'm thinking about building a maple/purple heart (or something of the sort) neck through with black walnut wings and an ebony (or a different dark exotic wood like cocobolo or something) fretboard.
