I hope this is the correct forum for this. I've been enjoying playing my fretless Steinberger so much that I want to convert my MIJ Jazz to fretless as well. Warmoth necks seem to have a good reputation here, so my thinking is heading that way. So many options, though... The bass is a lefty with an Oly-white body, and the original (fretted) neck is maple with a rosewood fingerboard. I play rock and jazz and I'm not trying for a "Jaco sound". I love playing fretless, but I don't like my playing to scream out "This is a fretless (mwahh)!" (if you know what I mean). I think maple will be fine for the shaft wood, and matches the current, but what fingerboard material? I'm thinking ebony would be durable and look nice against the white and maple. Finished or unfinished? I don't know the trade-offs here at all. I'm leaning toward the graphite truss rods, as this bass is a little neck-heavy in its current incarnation. I know I ultimately have to make up my own mind on all this, but I'd appreciate hearing opinions, and especially anecdotes from those that have done something like this. Thanks.
