So, I stumbled upon another forum and, being a guitar geek, was drawn into it. I have just had someone assure me, several times and rather snarkily, that not only [s]he, but you, I, & everyone else as well, cannot hear any difference between an all-maple and an all-mahogany solid-body.
Did I mention [s]he was snarky about it?
I love you folks.

I can safely say that I could hear the difference between two basses that are essentially the same except for top and back woods. One was maple the other walnut. The maple had a brighter sound compared to the walnut. I will agree however not all people will be able to hear the difference due to the uniqueness of their auditory system.

All basses sound the same through a crappy amp and the highs rolled off.
Give me an Alembic (or Rick) any day through a Kickin' clean amp/cab.
I'm jamming with a metal band (for the first time) and they love the Alembic tone.
And - yes - huge difference between a maple and mahogany instrument.
And - glad you love us. I love y'all too!!!!!
