Default Wood tones

I am interested in knowing what sound would this wood combination provide:
Black tiger wings with maple core
Quitted wings with mahogany core
White tiger wings with walnut core

What are Black Tiger wings? Walnut with Tiger Maple? (sound like a Black Tiger model?)

What are White Tiger wings? Tiger Maple with Walnut? (sound like a White Tiger model?)

What finish? How many laminations?

How would you like the sounds described?

The wings for me are the woods that are call the top and back that are attach to the center piece. That is how I call it; I do apologize if it’s not call that way. I asking how are the lows, mids and highs in each model. I am interested to know in order to plan my next built

Here is the correct wood combo. They all have 5 piece laminate.

BSR5NT (Walnut Top & Back, Tiger Maple Core) “Black Tiger”

BSR5WT (Tiger Maple Top & Back, Walnut Core) “White Tiger”

BSR5EG (Quilted Maple Top & Back, Mahogany Core)
