Body Wood ID
« on: July 12, 2017, 07:06:07 PM »
Would anyone happen to know what type of body wood this is?  At first I thought it was mahogany, but now I'm wondering if it is cherry.  Thanks - Rob

Pics 5 and 6 look like the grain of cherry to me.

It's very nice and it does look like cherry.

Only the build card knows for sure.

Unfortunately there is No build card currently available.  I'm leaning toward cherry at the moment, very similar in appearance to another bass I have with a cherry core made around the same time as well, especially that light spot.
