My swamp ash Regius has the most aggressive, punctuated attack of any guitar I've ever played. It has a punchy, slightly metallic feel to it, it's pretty unique, and great! My Jackson RR1 (also maple neck thru but with alder wings sounds really chunky and less bright in comparison with the same bridge pickup, which is suprising as I'd always considered the Jackson a really bright guitar.
The other Regius I've tried (held) was mahogany but i didn't plug it in. In my hands it's didn't feel as resonant as mine, but maybe I just got lucky.
