Poplar is apparently something like alder (used in most of Fenders guitars) but cheaper
thanks a lot man, ne body else had ne other experience with it??
^ dude reduce your sig size. Please. And Poplar isn't a very good wood. Somewhere between agathis and alder.
its wood similar to alder...
I'm not a fan of it, refuse to build with it. I just really don't like the sound or the look of it.
It sounds fine, people just hate it because they jump on the bandwagon. Sounds decent, looks wierd though.
thanks pink, i kno it looks wierd but u kno looking for sumthin to use fast but my old friend's supplier is gettin me sum mahogony, for like 40 so im prolly gonna just go with that
