alder Jem vs basswood Jem
i sure this has been brought up lots of times- it's just easier to get the specific details starting a thread...
i'm just looking to find out if the alder Jems have more "body" to their tone than the basswood models? i have a DBK and a VBK (i love them both) and they sound thin next to my alder Strat and my mahogany Epiphone LP. i haven't had the chance to play a VSBL or VWH for myself to compare. i might sell off a few of my babies to get a VSBL if the "tone" is there. basswood just doesn't have the "body" that other woods tend to have. am i alone in this thinking? anyone who has these models and has done a comparison, please post some feedback. thanks!
