Re: Neck pocket stamp JEM-77 BFP
Sorry, Ibateur, I have to disagree!
The wood, as well as the quality of the used parts and woods DEFINITELY have a great influence on the sound.
If the body was NOT original but some cheapo Chinese 7 piece junk body, there would be a big difference in sound, even if it's the same wood.
If you dismount your electrics from your guitar and mount it to another one, it will sound different! If only the electrics would influence the tone, it wouldn't sound different. If only the electrics would influence tone, there would be no use of using mahogany, Ash, Alder or Basswood, it would all sound the same with the same electrics. It doesn't!
Yes, I have checked the electrics, they're soldered properly. I just expected a warmer, softer tone, but then again: every guitar has its own character in sound.
