Its a limited run probably just for U.S this one, but they do this all the time,its Alder.
The 'standard' 2008-2012 jc line is African mahogany.

Nope, the special runs use whatever they feel like using. I'm guessing you missed the basswood ones on Japan's site.

The only the reason the normal production ones are all mahogany right now is because that's what people are buying for the time being. In the past they've used ash and even full maple bodies.

I am actually alder fan. Fender stratocatser is ideal sound wise guitar for me , but i am also fan ibanez neck shape and tremolo so ...im looking for strat sound in ibby shape..... I am thinking about to get that jcustom but only if it is alder body...Honestly don't like mahogany at all, ....Ill probably will put basswood third after swamp ash. Just personal prefernce
