^for wood? lol

And check LP addicts ultimate tone wood thread. It'll be on here somewhere. The guy might sound a bit pretentious, but there's lots of great info in that thread.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Different woods have different tones, there is no best.

Mahogany neck and body maybe with a maple cap for a gibson type sound

Maple, alder, ash for a more fender kinda sound.

That is all.
