As to not spread too wide of a net, I stick to old-school Fender used woods ash, alder, pine, and basswood, when covering bodies, and solid maple, maple cap, and rosewood board necks. #askzac #guitartech #telecaster

Oh boy here we go. Please consider hearing a recording vs. playing it in a room.

My '68 (maple cap neck) had a poplar body. It sounded weird but it was my main guitar for twenty years - I just didn't know any better! When I sanded it down for a refinish I found a body glued up out of five different pieces of ugly greenish wood. Apparently, body seams interfere with vibration. It now has a one-piece Swamp Ash Warmoth body. It's very full sounding with a really nice resonance. I wish I'd gotten that body long ago! Purist collectors won't like what the guitar is now, but I don't care. When I got it in '89, the finish was beaten completely off in a few spots. The hardware was either missing or too damaged to use. Since it can't be a museum piece, it's a player. That's the way I like it!

Yeah but wood doesn't affect the tone of an electric guitar. It's all in the pups. Lol. 😂 People are fun.
The ones who don't think wood affects tone are my favorite.

Didn't Jim Lil debunk all of this?

On a Tele , the wood used seems to make more of a difference. Could it be the bridge also?

I am a Guitar Player and also a Guitar Tech. I had this client once who had formed a strong opinion based on some youtube videos he saw that wood does not have any effect on the tone of a guitar whatsoever and that it is all in the pickups. He is a metal player and i can understand how one dimensional and limited his hearing and relationship with tone can be with that kind of music. Sometimes, it is best to not argue with such people. As they say, whatever bakes one's cookie.

In my opinion, if you should have just one guitar, it should be an Alder body and a One-piece maple neck and fingerboard combo. That would pretty much cover all ground musically. In a guitar with humbuckers, that combo has a great tone with Humbucker splits. It gives you all the twang and clarity but also some weight with those mids.

Hi Zac, what do you think about Fender’s new approach using roasted pine on their Pro IIs?

Its all a marketing ploy by Fender to make more money, pure snake oil......why else would every manufacturer of wood instruments use a full compliment of tonewoods to create their instruments.Not to mention violins. I mean if Scott G says so its got to be true right???? :0))

How do you explain the tone that guy got from his concrete bodied Tele ? He compared it with an all wood tele and you could virtually detect NO difference. Also the guy (also on You Tube) who slowly cut a wooden guitar body down to it bare bones, piece by piece. He then analysed the before and after. Looking at frequencies etc and there was virtually ZERO difference. I think the tone wood body argument has pretty much been debunked. Also guitar bodies made out of resin and even glass sound no different to those made out of wood.

excellent video as usual. I think there is a direct relation between attack and brightness since both occur in the first part of a note. If the body and neck are made of a hard wood, there will be little transfer of energy from the string to those woods and there will be more brightness and attack (more energy in the string in the first part of the note). I think this happens because these hardwoods are less prone to movement and require less energy. It's a crazy idea of ​​mine anyway. Saludos desde Argentina!

Ultimately, isn't wood just a wonderful natural thing, even if you have a wooden leg?... So, what did Brian May use with his old man when they built it in his shed?

Wood has no effect on tone or sustain .this has been run thru the mill for years it is a myth, bridge, pickups, nut, neck wood have the ability to alter tone and sustain, stop the bull 🐂

Hi Zac, any thoughts on what a poplar body might present?? Poplar is light and not very dense (I think).

Ash is nice cause it has no mids , but plenty of low and highs ,
Rosewood has a looser low end ,
Where as maple is tighter not brighter , alder is all mids, both are perfect bolt on woods .
