    Hi

    does anyone, player or luthier, have any experiment with this kind of fingerboard on a double bass?

    http://soundcomposites.com/fingerboards

    If semeone have changed ebony for carb.graphite or the reverse?

    Will be interresting to know if it had an effect on sound, sustain, or anything else.

    If you use the 'Search' function, you'll find that the topic has been thoroughly covered. ;)

    Thanks. But that's what I did, with "carbon fibre fingerboard", "sound composite fingerboard", and do not find what I search. I'll try again; maybe someone can suggest a thread?

    Hi.

    Welcome to TalkBass BoCoPo.

    Also, welcome to the dark side of TB :).
    It's a bit rough (and dark) over here, but very rewarding in the long run ;).



    I must have missed those threads that thoroughly covers the topic of CF fingerboards, so I'd like a link to that (/those) thread(s) as well.

    All I found are these two...

    http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f3/ebony-alternatives-904675/

    http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f3/lightweight-fingerboard-772021/

    Perhaps I didn't look hard enough, but mention or a two from a few individuals is all that I saw in those threads.

    Regards
    Sam
