Each tone wood has its own subtle characteristics. Some considerations to take into account when choosing tone wood for electric guitar bodies are the density, visual aspects, and workability of the wood. All of which affect the overall tonal qualities of the guitar body blanks you make.
The density of the guitar tonewood has a lot to do with the weight of the finished body blank, as well as how it resonates over the frequency spectrum. The visual aspects will reflect the aesthetic value of the instrument. The workability of the tone wood is how easy it is to tool and shape. How the wood excepts and secures hardware is also important. These are very important things you need to take into consideration when designing your guitar.
