There seem to be so many types of wood that bodies are made with. What is the order from best to worst? Are some types made for different sounds?

Mahogony=Best sustain, better low end.
Alder=Good sustain, better high end.
Basswood=Good/best sustain, balanced out between low and high end.
Agathis=Just dont get it.
Nato=Just dont even consider a guitar if it has this wood "COUGHBCRICHCOUGH"

It's worse pissing when you come in from the really cold weather and your penis has shrunken to the size of a coffee stir straw and the piss feels like the blast from a super soaker.

Hey y'all forgot to mention plywood, its also wood ya know or crap... Anyways, plywood sits below agathis. Reasons why manufacturer use this is coz they want to find a decent thing for the pups/bridge/paint to cling on, thats all.

Koe - Sorta upper mid-range, quite bright. Koas are very expensive and are used normaly for tops.

Korina - Almost the same as Mahogany in sounding and also woodgrain. Has better mids then Mahogany but weighs more than mahogany. More rare and expensive than Mahogany.
