Looks to be either alder or ash.

In the end, the only question is: what bass would Jesus play?

I think he's a Fender Jazz guy.

KK it was a $50 squier affinity I got a couple months ago. I am happy then. Once I get that thick layer of stuff off the guitar, will tru oil protect it very well ? I mean dents included?

Edit: can anyone tell if it's one piece or more?

its got a 10 apr 01 in the neck pocket

If it's an affinity then its definitely alder.

Hard to tell by the pics but maybe three pieces.

Affinity's are made from alder.

Like all woods, you get good and bad grades. Only by getting it all set up will you find out!

Generaly the grain is what is called "boring" meaning transparent finishes are usually avoided. It takes stain well and is easy to work with. It is usually lighter in weight and provides an excellent tone.

Edit: However, your looks like a nice grain.

Thanks Boring is perfect by me, I find flame, birdseye and such ugly, I like the fact mine looks rather like a picnic table
