there is no best wood it depends on what tone you want
Alder balanced tone (used alot in strats)
basswood very midsy (think shred)
mahogany very bassy but still good
Swamp ash is similar to alder

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.

im putting a 59' pup and an invader pup in my guitar and i have a mahogany body and a mahgoany/rosewood fretboard

would that give a good sound or bad sound

that would sound decent i guess, i personnaly hate invader pickups and think they sound like ****, but if you like that supper noisy high gain sound i guess theyll sound nice. It wont sound horribly bad by any means.

It's sound will be perfectly fine. Trust me the importance of wood is very exagerrated. I find a bigger difference in fretboard wood and electronics than body wood.

i had an invader in a guitar i bought. only thing i liked about the invader was the pinch harmonics it produced. but if you want a good pup that will do more than metal, then the custom custom. the 59 paired with that is an excellent combination
