Well I'm teaching my friend guitar, and he's going to get one of his for Christmas. He was looking at the Jackson JS series which have Indian cedro wood, I'm not sure whether to advise him to get something else.
So how is the wood tonally?

I had a Strat with a body made out of it a couple of years back. Utterly horrible wood. Heavier than hard ash and a tone like muted basswood with no sustain.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

I have a JS30, don't mind it and you won't notice much if you're a beginner but once you hear/play other guitars with better wood, you start to think "Wow, I f*cking wasted my money." tbh.

i've got one. it sounds somewhat similar to alder, in my opinion.
there's no such thing as a "bad" wood, only preference.

switching out the cheap stock pickups will make a bigger difference in this case.
the sound of a guitar is a sum of all its components, not just the wood.

I have an older JS series Dinky and I think it sounds rather strat-like. Not a lot of sustain, but mine has a trem so a lot of the body is routed so that could be why.
