    He even put an angled headstock on it! I love the fact that the color got voted on too.

    It kills me a little inside knowing it's basswood.

    YUS2.

    Yeah, I'm sure there are a few quality instruments out there made of basswood, but it's been thrown in soooooo many low-range guitars that it's spoiled what maybe could be awesome.

    That body looks upsized for the 7th string, you'll probably want to chamber it to get the weight down!

    Honestly for me, basswood is one of the go-to woods. Sure it doesnt' look good unfinished, but it's stable.

    I look at mahogany the same way a lot of people look at basswood because it's used in every Gibson guitar (which is why I've only built one guitar with it.). Not going down the tonewood conversation.

    I think they're all better at different things. Basswood just works for the solo guitar artist, since it has a ton of midrange and everything is rounded off (not boomy, not a ton of cut). I love how all those shredders get fat, round, musical sounding single note lines. However, I've seen a lot of guys playing basswood get buried in two guitar bands where the other guys is playing something different. Alder works great for thrash, since it has a lot of attack and tracks really well. Mahogany is awesome for slamming a power chord and just feeling it swallow you; so much girth.

    I bet half of what you don't like about the Gibson sound is the mahogany neck. The maple necked 70s Les Pauls sounds completely different, and if we're being honest, neck wood is more of the tone than the body. Especially on neck thrus.

    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.
