I'm building an 000 with Wenge now and I absolutely love the stuff. I've got the shop RH down low during building to protect it in the future. The tap tone of this stuff is sensational. How that translates to a finished box is another story but it really has an incredible tap tone, glassy, brittle and bell like.

I have wondered about pore fill and tone in the past too and I don't want to open a can of worms here but I never like the idea of doing an epoxy pore fill that covers the whole body. I would use epoxy on Wenge though and sand back to wood. a more traditional fill would work like that and as such you will only have material left over in the pores themselves. It would be interesting to weigh the guitar body before and after, my guess is that it's not going to make that much of a difference.
