What are the sound characteristics of different wood, that guitar body's are made of. I know that maple is brighter, and mahogany is darker, but what about, alder, and other wood's like that?
Alder is bright and used in Strats and such.
Basswood is in between Alder and Mahogany, but is usually cheap.
Agathis is just crap.

This is UG, we love Schecters and Ibanez and Jacksons, we hate Deans and BCR's, we hate Marshall MG's, and everyone needs a new amp.
