I'm not trolling but... "Tone Wood" is a stupid term. IMO However, I am currently doing some gigs with a 6 string banjo in which I have mounted a single coil (strat style) pickup to the under side of the head. I'm using the same strings that I use on my Tele (GHs Boomers)...it sounds like a banjo. My resonator with a single coil... sounds like a resonator. If different bodies have different sounds then it follows that materials of varying density will have subtly different sound characteristics.
