Hi to everyone I'm new here and sorry for my bad english. I'd like to try a short scale guitar, so I was thinking to buy an used duo sonic squier (desert sand) or a new MIM duo sonic or mustang. The body of the new MIM duo sonic and mustang are made of alder, the Squier duo sonic are made of basswood so I prefer the first one but.... "They're made of 5~7 pieces of wood glued side by side, with a thin veneer on the top and bottom. The veneer lets them use pieces with knots, splits, and wane." This is what I've read about the MIM alder bodies, so I'm a bit confused. Are the basswood body of the squire duo sonic made in a better way? Are they better than the MIM ? Thank you in advice.
