Wood plays an important role in determining the sound quality of your build. The beautiful tones emerge from vibrations of the strings through a magnetic field emanating from the guitar’s pickups. Hence, guitar woods also contribute to its tonal quality. The strings may not come in direct contact with the wood you use, but energy from a strummed string creates frequencies that move throughout the wood. Heavier woods resonate differently compared to medium and light-weight woods. It’s essential to select the right quality wood for your electric guitars. 

Alder is the foremost common wood and is employed extensively for guitar body blanks as a result of its several fine characteristics, lighter weight, and its full sound. The alder body blank has closed grains that make this wood very simple to finish. Alder is a perfect choice for first builds. It cuts, sands, and glues extremely well. Alder's natural color may be a light tan with very little or no distinct grain lines. It's sensible with a sunburst or a solid color finish. The tone is supposed to be most balanced with equal doses of lows, mids, and highs. Alder has been the mainstay for Fender bodies for several years and its characteristic tone has been a part of a number of the most enduring items of recent} day contemporary music.
