I'm currently stripping down an old 70s Japanese Telecaster Deluxe copy that apparently comes from the Yamaki plant. I caught a glimpse of the wood grain. It feels very light and sounds resonant from what I can tell. I don't see any stripping on the side.

Does anyone know what kind of wood this could be?

looks like alder to me.
