    Rosewood is only for fretboards.

    I wouldn't count on teak. It's an oily wood, and any oil ooze will spoil the finish.

    ^^^ Very True Umangu..Teak Is oily and it does not hold on to the sound that long. The oiliness damps the sound vibrations. It is tough but not a tone wood. But no harm in using it for Electrics. African TeaK is less oily and Lighter too.

    And I respect alpha's "test" for those who recommended wood over wood.....hehe...!!!

    Strictly, I do believe in wood's influence over tone.
    But in acoustic (very big influence), and in electric clean tone.

    To some extent in overdriven tones (but then EQing and voicing of amp/pedal would mask)

    However, in distortion, more so in metal distortion, I find it amusing when ppl get fussy about wood.

    Ahh Alpha I agree.. with you the reason ihave been talking abt wood so much is because I play clean with a little overdrive here and there.... So i can herethe diff.. ofcouse under loads of effects or heazvy distortion nobody can tell much diff.
