Re: help, please. is this an alder body?
thanks for the input. yeah, i know the wood quality isn't great. but it should be a 7-8 year old body, +/- year or two. so i kinda hope that the wood dried up a bit over the years and that Squier used to put better materials in there then. so... maybe it could turn out ok.
I wouldn't say it's agathis. agathis doesn't look like this from what i saw. i thought it might be basswood. that's why i posted this thread.
i ordered it anyway. the price is 30€. so... if it's good, it's a sweet deal, and if it's bad i can always sell it.
i would say this is a three piece. i have a couple more pics, and i can see one joint clearly, and the other one you really have to try hard to see.
the neck pocket numbers aren't clear on any of the pics. i thought of looking it up by the number too.
i know a couple of people, and they say it looks like alder, but grains are a bit closer than normal. so... it's probably some lower class alder. it should be good enough for a budget, backup partcaster.
when i get it in a couple of days, i'll post the socket numbers.
you people rock (:
