Interesting that he went with basswood rather than mahogany...

He played a bunch of Suhrs and liked the basswood ones. John Suhr considers that wood combination the Holy Grail of tone.

I think the basswood hate comes from a combination of it's boring looks, in expensive price and it's use on cheap guitars. I thought it was strange seeing it in his sig because in a video of him demonstrating some Suhrs he goes on about how great mahogany is.

Steel has high tensile strenth. It is an AWESOME building material.

Would you now find it strange for me to opt for aluminum or bricks when building something?

I'm surprised at how well the basswood takes to the translucent finish. Looks sexy and I bet it sounds even sexier. :yum:
