I went over the sounds of woods extensively in the FAQ. Plus, I believe Warmoth was very meticulous in it's description of their woods - check the website.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

I researched this extensively not very long ago, one place that I would was brief but helpful was from here, to summerize:

Hard Woods

Harder woods have a brighter, snappier sound to them. They give a bass a nice percussive tone. Hard woods include Hard Maple (or Rock Maple), Ebony, Walnut, Paduak, Wenge, Koa and Rosewood.

Rosewood is a commonly used wood on the fingerboards of bass guitars. While it is bright and clear, it has a bit more warmth and darkness than the other common fingerboard wood - maple.
Soft Woods

Softer woods have a mellower, warmer tone. Soft woods include Alder, Swamp Ash and Basswood. These woods are commonly used for bass guitar bodies as they have very resonant qualities.

Mahogany is a medium-hard wood and is used in some bass guitar bodies.
