Hello all, I am finally getting to start working on my custom fretless J. I will try to update this post as it comes together. Thanks so far to Nino Valenti for some input on hardware choices. Right now the only finished piece is the neck. It is a one off from USA Custom Guitars - Flatsawn maple w/ graphite inlaid rods, ebony fretboard w/ maple lines, and 7 &1/4" radius. I finished the back and headstock Ernie Ball style with Birchwood Casey Tru-Oil and Gunstock Wax, and it has a very sleek feel. The fretboard is unfinished. I should have the body finished in a week or so, and I will post some pics of it when its done.
