Swamp Ash with a dark Rosewood board on a maple neck works probably the best for any application in a bolt-on configuration

I have one with roasted Alder and one in Basswood. Honestly, I can't tell much of a difference. The Basswood does have a maple cap and the alder doesn't but I'd love to have another Modern in hog and maple cap.
