Is Basswood a good wood to deal with? I am thinking of modding my Bass, and want to know if it is worth it. Thank you.....

Tons of guitars are made of basswood.
I will show you something different from either
Your shadow in the morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you
I will show you fear in a handful of dust

^x2 Tons of guitars are made of plywood, it doesnt' make it good.

And basswood is alright, Some people hate it, others like it.

Basswood is a good wood it's, very easy on the shoulders.

I want to know if it is a good tone wood. I have a schecter bass, and i want to install a hipshot trem, and want to know if it is worth it.

Yes, it's worth it. Basswood isn't the best wood around, but it it's a O.K wood, just like the other guy said some people like it, others don't.

1- Because you don't have to be an ass about it.
2- Because I wanted to make sure it is not a waste of money.
