Our greatest concern - first and foremost
While there are many woods that can and are used for tops, we don't recommend many of them if they have little or no positive tonal impact to the resulting instrument. When discussing your bass guitar, this will be pointed out in greater detail and the pros and cons will be brought to your attention. We pride ourselves in putting forth only the very best of what we know is possible in a New York Bass Works instrument!
