I am planning on buying a new guitar and putting Mo' Joe and PAF Joe humbuckers on it. These are relatively bright and high-end as far as tone. I was thinking about getting a guitar with a basswood body, which is also bright-sounding. If I got a mahogany body guitar, which is more warm, fat, and low-end, would that give me a more dynamic tone range, or would the wood and pickups sort of cancel each other out (if that makes sense)? Which wood would be better?
Decide on the pickups based on the guitar
I am, but I have a few guitars in mind that have all the features I want. The only difference is their woods. I need to know which will go best with my humbucker selection.
