"The former is what I’ve always played on, with my ’77 Jazz Bass. An ash body and maple neck makes for a bright sound for slapping because the woods are so hard, but for fingerstyle you have to work a bit harder to make the notes jump out. With an alder and rosewood combination, fingerstyle seems to jump out more, but you can slap on it, as well. That’s the main difference, so we offer both."
