Poplar wood is a type of hardwood that is often used in the construction of electric guitars. It is a lightweight and inexpensive wood with a bright tone and good sustain. It is often used in the body and neck of guitars, as well as in the fingerboard and headstock. Poplar wood is a good choice for electric guitars because it provides a good balance between sound and price.

I'm Joost Nusselder, the founder of Neaera and a content marketer, dad, and love trying out new equipment with guitar at the heart of my passion, and together with my team, I've been creating in-depth blog articles since 2020 to help loyal readers with recording and guitar tips.
