Post tremelo filling question.
A quick question out to those that have filled their trem cavities for hard tail conversion:

What's the best type of wood to use for this? as an aside, which woods that are typically found in electric guits are the easiest to work with; ie cuts well, easy to finish, etc. thanks..

i had a few scraps of maple and mahoghany lying around when i made mine. for the trem rout i used the maple(front) and for the back rout(back of the guitar where springs are) i used mahoghany. worked like a charm.

interesting... did you notice a difference in the tone after using the maple, since it's such a dense, heavy wood?
