Why is basswood considered as shote compared to ash and alder? And are all MIJ fender basses made of basswood?

Planning to buy a 60s traditional precision bass MIJ , learned that its made in basswood. Would that turn you down?

Basswood trees

I've learned recently that many of the trees on my property are basswood. Do they have any use in a permaculture homestead? An arborist told me they were "junk trees" that grow like weeds. Kinda seems like I could do coppicing of some kind based on how they send up shoots if you cut them? The arborist said they aren't good for firewood though so idk...

Thoughts?
