As with much in life, it's not that simple. A number of Vincenzo Panormo's basses from his period in Italy used pearwood. Makers tended to use what woods were available locally (which is why Panormo switched in English period basses). Play'em and listen. If it's made it through 200-300 years and sounds good, well you know the rest...
