I am building a Warmoth bass and am considering using walnut for the body. I have heard conflicting opinions about the tonal properties of walnut. Has anybody out there used walnut? I am also considering koa. I need a heavy body-wood to balance the warmoth neck (wenge) and it is a fretless bass so I need a bright sounding wood with good sustain. Any opinions would be appreciated.

Kevin
