Hey, I'm about to buy a new guitar, and was thinking either a Kramer Pacer Classic (Mahogany Body) or Striker 211 Custom(Alder Body). My friend is thinking about an Epi LP Standard (Mahogany) or a Schecter Omen 6 (Basswood) and I was wondering which woods would go best together, because right now his basswood body is drowning out my maple body.

Thanks for the help

On the home page they have pictures of some band called 'escape the fate'.
Is anyone else attracted to that girl with the white guitar (on the right) ?

You might want to worry about the pickups rather than the wood on lower grade guitars

I thought this would be a thread about erectile dysfunction and I could get some lulz. For ruining my day, you get a mad-stack.

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood? Once you can answer that you'll know what guitar to get...

If your gonna get an epi just get the black beauty, those sound better than the studios and look sexy...

+1, although the wood does have a little bit of an effect.

Uh, lower grade epiphone's aren't great, but they're not bad.

Alder is fairly balanced, and it's nice and light.

Basswood is fairly warm, has pretty good mids.

Mahogany is warm and full, which is a reason it's typically used in les pauls.

As darkcheef said, pickups matter more in lower-end guitars (although that's the same in all guitars, worry more about the pickups in lower-end guitars).

From your OP, it sounds like you play metal or something along those lines. I'd say that any of those combinations would probably work well. I don't have experience with those guitars other than the Epi, so I can't really say.


You'll get much better answers in Guitar Gear and Accessories.

I'm wondering why TS is concerned about wood drowning out his guitar. I'd be more worried about your amp o_O.

I dunno man, my friend has a really nice Epi that plays pretty much like a "legit" Gibson. Just depends on what you get.

Your correct opinion.

I have an Epi, and a Gibbo Explorer. I'm selling the Gibson. Keeping the Epi.

To answer your question, I'd need to know who was playing lead. But as said before, you'll get better answers in GG&A.

What about your amps? Is one of you playing with your mids at like 4 and the other at like 8?
#24
Wood won't make one guitar drown out another. Just fidlde with the EQ on your amp, probably boost the mids a bit.
