Is alder/ash good for guitar bodies?

Hi, is alder/ash a good wood for guitars? I understand each wood makes a different "sound", but usually i see basswood usually as a cheaper guitar wood? Occasionally is see a guitar with alder bodies, but they are usually very cheap guitars.

Can someone help please?

Alder is pretty standard. Yes, you find it in less expensive guitars, but the wood doesn't harm their tone any. In fact, there's a significant body of opinion that in electric guitars and basses, body wood has little to no effect on the actual tone. It's obviously very important in acoustic guitars, because the wood is what vibrates to produce sound, but in an electric guitar it's magnetic pickups responding to vibrating strings - the wood only matters if it affects how the strings vibrate, and it's not clear that it really does. Swamp ash is often the next step up, again not so much for tonal reasons as that it's lighter and has a more aesthetically pleasing grain to it, so it looks better under a clear finish.
