With all the discussion of tonewoods for the guitar body and how they affect tone and match with different pickups (alder, basswood, ash, mahogony, etc), it seems that most of the high-end guitars are neck-thru designs where the maple neck wood is going to be under the strings/pickups anyway. How much does the bodywood even matter in that scenario? Am I better off getting a set neck to get the benefit of the bodywood tone? I'm working on a custom with alder body and maple neck (ebony fretboard), and want to pair it with BKP holy diver humbuckers. I've read a lot of reviews that alder + BKP is a good combination. But I'm worried that if it's neck-thru, I'll get something different. I have neck-thru and bolt-on guitars already. Pretty much every bolt-on I've played has horrible upper-fret access (Anything above the 19th), while the neck-thru's I can comfortably reach the 24 no problem. I haven't yet had a set-neck to know how well it compares between them. I have a maple neck-thru with mahogony body and it sounds like the mahagony tone anyway, so maybe it's a somewhat moot issue. I play clean, crunch/saturation, and high-gain. And I understand it's typical the guitar wood/pup/hw have less tone impact the higher gain you go.
