Species: Alder (Alnus rubra)
The original tonewood used by Fender! Red Alder tends to be a light tan to reddish brown; color darkens and reddens with age. There is no visible distinction between heartwood and sapwood. It is light in weight with soft tight pores like basswood. but with large swirling grain patterns and rings. The overall grain pattern and appearance is similar to Birch ,though redder than Birch. Red Alder is very easy to work with and sands especially easy. The wood is rather soft, 590 on the Janka Scale, and care must be taken to avoid denting it. Red Alder has excellent gluing, staining, and finishing properties; it also turns well and behaves similar to Black Cherry.
Alder gives more highs and less of the mids and is relatively deficient in bass in comparison with other tone woods. It has a very warm sound but does not quite have as much "bite" as ash. It was most popular in the 1950's and 1960's.
