Usually expensive woods! - Bubinga, Ovangkol, Buckeye burl, Spalted Maple..

Have a look around Fodera's site, lots of basses with different exotic woods..

But to be honest, the wood doesnt give a HUGE difference in the tone, its all down to the pre-amp inside to how good/different your bass sounds..

Godamn I love the look of exotic woods on a bass. I want to get a custom made fretless with some really nice exotic woods.
