Default Spurce vs Basswood

Hi,
I'm getting ready to start a project, 1/3rd scale Champ, that calls for mostly spruce sticks from 1/8 sq to 3/8 sq.
I haven't built in a while, so when I went to SIG's site I found they no longer carry spruce, just basswood, same at BALSA USA.
I know basswood is a little easier to work with and glue but I don't think it has the strength of spruce.
Just wondering if any one has used basswood and any comments, pro or con.
Thanks,
Jon
