Can anybody tell me which wood this is? i was under the impression that it was agathis, but since having a look at alot of alder bodies, im having suspicions as to which one it is.

If I look at the upper horn, I can say that it might just be veneer...

Take a pic looking horizontally along the body of the neck cavity, that's usually the best indicator.

That's the best indicator if it's plywood or not... Agathis != Plywood. If he doesn't know the grain patterns of each wood type, he won't know if it's agathis or alder.

Agathis isn't plywood at all.

Again, the best indiacator of what wood type it is, is to take a shot of the side and back of the body.

It's not nerd typing... It's programming language... I should have been more specific.

Last time I checked this was a guitar forum though.

I thought agathis was pine of some kind? Either way alder is better.
