I’ve decided that poplar is my favorite tonewood. Sure, it’s ugly and lacks the warmth of mahogany, the crystalline clears of alder, or the snap of ash, but it handles single coils, humbuckers, and P90s with ease. It doesn’t do anything badly, just not as well as other woods. It does humbuckers better than ash and single coils better than mahogany, and it still has a decent amount of snap. In that sense, it’s a great do-it-all guitar wood. I want a 25-in scale PRS inspired guitar with custom switching and a poplar body.
