I've noticed in several ads for vintage basses that a few were constructed of fruitwoods (pear, etc.). These woods seem to be much lighter than the firs, spruces, maples etc. otherwise used.

What are the pros and cons of fruitwood basses? Are they to be desired or avoided, or is it not that simple?
