Yeh. I'm torn on this one.
I had a guitar and a bass with basswood in the past; both were lifeless. Just my experience.Is this something I missed, a universal distaste for basswood? I have a couple of great sounding basswood guitars; one is one of my favorites.
Anyway, I agree... it doesn't look like the grain of either of mine. But then I'm no botanist...)

Another county heard from... there must be many with the same experience; hence the general basswood disdain.
One of mine sounds dark, but not bad... the other sounds pretty balanced. I wonder if there's a lot of variety between different pieces?
