Alder has a strong, clear, full-bodied sound, with beefy mids and excellent lows. Its highs sizzle slightly, but are rarely harsh, and it offers a decent amount of sustain. Slightly brownish in its natural, dried state, alders grain isnt necessarily unattractive, but it usually isnt particularly interesting, either. It is typicaly used under opaque finishes, but some examples can look good under darker translucent finishes. Like ash, alder is most often used on its own as a body wood.
NECK: BOLT ON/MAPLE/C-SHAPE
The C-shape has a comfortable profile that works well for most playing styles. They are usually not as deep as most U- and V-shaped neck profiles.
Maple is a dense, hard tonewood that produces bright, snappy tones. In the context of a guitar fretboard, this means precise, articulate notes with good bite and a tight low end.
