will emgs(81) sound good in alder or birch?
Alder and EMGs, I think it will be very trebly, I dont know about birch though.
Alder and 81s ahh Hammett that simple
^i agree..........with birch it would probably sound sort of dampened, probably pretty cool IMO
so it with the alder its not going to sound bad? im going for a metal tone, pretty heavey, but with mids.
I don't even think birch is hard enough to be used as a tone wood...
alder is bright, basswood is brighter, mahogany is warm
