Ibanez bolt on basswood/bolt on mahogany/neck through

I can't decide between this combinations. Which is the difference between the bolt on and neck through mahogany, tone wise? Because I've read that the neck through predominates the brightness of the maple and is too much brighter than the bolt on. Don't know if it's true. Also I wanna know if basswood is better than mahogany for lead playing. I play mostly metal and rock (rhythm and lead).

Re: Ibanez bolt on basswood/bolt on mahogany/neck through

If the neck thru has a maple neck, going through the body (where the bridge is), you won't hear the tone of the mahogany body "wings" as much as you would a full mahogany body with a bolt on neck. IMO, the neck thru will sound brighter, and the bolt on will sound warmer. Which tone is better for lead is up to you. I know lots of lead metal players that use both. If you use a high gain amp, lots of effects, or active pickups, it really won't matter that much..

Is there a big difference between the bolt on mahogany and the maple neck through mahogany?
