    Default Lighter Northern Ash

    I got 5 blanks of Northern Ash yesterday and it's lighter than average. This body finished this morning weighed in at 4.7 lbs. Typically the NA that I've had in the past produced a finished body close to 5.5 lbs. which is pretty heavy as a completed guitar. I have 2 blanks left.

    It is a San Demon. I changed the name to protect the innocent, and I think it sounds cool-er. In Northern Ash it's $195 on my site. It's cut from my Frankenstein body template, but I changed the cavities of course for the San Demon.

    Not even going to try. I'm busy as hell at my current price so I won't be changing that any time soon. Accuracy costs.

    Its kinda relitive.
    Depends on the pup alot also.
    Just think of the Les Paul.
    Even though they're Mohog, those corksniffers love em heavy.

    Na..that's mostly BS. I can't stand light guitars personnaly. i've tried a load of Ash strat, and most don't sound as good as the heavier alder ones.

    Telecaster, that's another story, you want a lot of "twang" in a tele..the lighter it is, the better is will sound for twang.

    Sustain suffers too.

    My Swamp Ash bodies are around 3.25-3.50 lbs.
    Normally my Northern Ash hits about 5.25+
    This is a happy medium at 4.5
    Ron is correct that a lot depends on the pup. My WarEd sounds awesome in a Swamp Ash w/Maple Neck and Floyd Equipped axe, but terrible in a Northern Ash w/Maple Neck and Fender Tremolo equipped axe. My Brown Bomb is the exact opposite. Heavier and harder means more sustain as well.
    My Tele is Swamp Ash and it's got "Twang" from hell.
