adler is very good wood. most fenders (including MIAs) are made from it). they have very nice tone and they arent too heavy. its pretty standard wood and many guitars are made from it

Give 10 UGers a rope and ask them to pull. 4 will push, 1 will ask for buttsecks, 2 will tell you get an Ibanez and the last 3 will start complaining about Line6 Spiders.
Alder is light-weight, easy to finish, and has a low price.

Tone-wise, it has a lot of treble, sounds very nice, clean and crisp, (IMO), and is suited for lead.

Mahogony is best for sustain, the heavier the wood the better the sustain (thats what I think).

Yeah, selling out totally changes your sexual preference.
alder is a great wood for clean or lead stuff and ok for rythm but i prefer mahogany or swamp ash myself
