hey guys, was wondering what you all thought about Tasmanian Myrtle for a solid body electric build?

it's got a 200kg higher density per sq meter than Mahogany does and is silky smooth timer. I would have thought by those stats it would be an ideal tone-wood.

Any thoughts?

Try it, if it's denser than Maho you'll probably get an extremely bright tone out of it.

i thought the more dense the timer the deeper/browner/rounder the sound would be...

but tonal wise, is it more like alder than mahogany? from what I understand it is supposed to be very consistent so good for sustain

Probably. Denser woods have more sustain, but also tend towards being brighter.

so in theory, Balsa wood must have a seriously deep rich tone being only 125kg m3...or am i thinking on the wrong wave length?
