I've always called it a fingerboard.
A fretboard has frets. Fingerboard does not.

Either. We all know what these terms refer to, there's no distinction.
Fretboard - When you are hanging out with your friends.
Fingerboard- When you are trying to impress your first date.
So does a finger board have fingers on it?
Fretboard = fretted basses
Fingerboard = fretless basses
That's what I,ve always thought.
We all know what it is. It doesn't matter really, but technically it's a fingerboard fretted or fretless.
Sure there is. My fretted basses have fretboards and my fretless basses have fingerboards.
Ill keep a fingerizing my slappity plank if yer don't mind
+1 Fretboard speaks for itself. It's a more specific word, indicating that the fingerboard has frets on it.
Which is exactly why it shouldn't be used when discussing a fretless bass.
I never talk about it, therefore, I don't call it anything.
Exactly. A fretboard is a fingerboard with frets on it.
Mine does when I'm playing it
What he said.
I say fingerboard to confuse guitarists.
