I was wondering which wood I should use for a green meanie replica, I want to use alder for tonal qualities but I want to stay faithful to the original? which is basswood, curious what you guys think.

I think basswood and alder sound quite different. Alder is brighter than basswood, basswood is neutral to dark sounding depending on the piece.
