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.
