    Default Alternative to Maple tone

    hey guys, does anyone know what a good alternative to the maple tone would be? Im asking cuz im planning on doing a warmoth/kamikaze guitar and although a maple body was my first choice, im trying to think of some alternate woods that arent as heavy as maple, but has the same tone (or close to it)

    Mahogany is pretty close. Although it will produce slightly less high end. Heavy but not as heavy as Maple. I prefer basswood and ash personally due to their even tone and extremely light weight. Alder would be a good third choice.
