Back to singing trees
I find that the Honduran and African species of Mahogany have very similar
tonal response.
But I also find that the individual pieces of both species will vary greatly in tone as well as appearance and weight..
So, every piece of wood that I hand select is tested for tone.
I usually find that the lighter weight pieces have more warmth, mid-range and an open resonant musical tone (I usually prefer these as body material),
The heavier pieces tend to be a more bright "snappy" tone (I sometimes prefer these as neck material)...
