    I got this Warmoth neck from their in stock page a couple of weeks ago. I'd been thinking of getting a fretless and figured I'd save a few dollars by swapping necks on my Warmoth-body Jazz. The neck is wenge with an ebony fingerboard. Here's a front shot:

    It feels great. It's attached to the body now but I'm still setting it up (gotta file down the nut slots). Look how much lighter the wenge is compared to my older fretted neck:

    This is Warmoth neck number 6 for me. I find a wenge/ebony combination is my favourite. :hyper:

    Very nice. I've been considering something similar.

    Got a (fretted) Warmoth in that wood config on my Fenderbird...neck is fantastic.

    I've used that wood combo before as well. The wenge really seems to focus the lows, it's really interesting sonically. How is the fretboard in terms of smoothness? Can you feel the fret lines at all?

    Fingerboard is very smooth. I can feel the fret lines only very slightly, almost imperceptible.
