I have a Guitarfettish XGP body Lake Placid Blue Strat body partscaster with a Warmoth roasted maple neck.it sounds great. the white poplar body is fine. but I did think I was getting the same as regular poplar.they weigh about the same but regular yellow poplar is harder. white polar is about the same hardness as basswood.410 vs 540 for yellow tulip poplar on the janka hardness scale.I mention this because there our "poplar bodies" on ebay and you should know what you are getting.I seen a gold 2 piece poplar body.To the seller,s credit he told me it was white poplar.my white poplar body. I have had over a year and it is fine. my guitar tech did a great job with the setup.I have nothing against basswood. but the Guitarfettish ad said no basswood bodies here. lt lead me to think.I was getting a form of tulip poplar.my fault because. I did not do the research.has anyone here made a comparison between white poplar.yellow poplar,alder, basswood. I know setup and neck and pickups make the biggest difference and playing also. Thank you Ron Kirn your comments on body woods made me feel better about my white poplar body.
