It all depends on preference.
I enjoy mahogany, to me it has a very dark and rich tone.

Wood is the last thing you need to be thinking about.

First, make sure you have the right AMP. Then make sure you have the right GUITAR. Then make sure you have the right PICKUPS. NOW you can be picky about the wood.

Actually, it's

Amp >>> Wood >>> Pickups

As for what affects tone the most, at least IMO.

I think the wood really depends on the pickups and amp you are using, and the sound you are going for especially. For single coils i like alder. For humbuckers and especially metal, i like using mahogany. However, imo active emgs are better complimented with alder bodys especially the emg85 in the neck. Really all depends.
