Alder Tone Wood - Suhr Guitars

Alder ​
Alder was one of the most popular guitar body woods of the 1960's. Grown all over the world, Alder is medium to light in weight with soft tight pores. It has a light tan color and can sometimes exhibit large swirling grain patterns and rings. Alder is favored by blues and rock players for its strong, clear, full-bodied sound, with beefy mids and excellent lows. Alder is used extensively for guitar bodies because of its light weight and its full sound. ​
