Hi everyone from the new guy here. I have an "aesthetic/style" question. I have a '36 Kay blondie plywood bass that I got a couple years back from a family friend (retired player). It came with the old gut strings and in bad need of a overall setup. So I got it setup when i first bought it, and being new to UB, it seemed fairly good. Well, since then, I've only noodled with it (being primarily an EB player), but recently decided to take "real" lessons to finally learn how to play it correctly. My first lesson, the older teacher I found looked my Kay over and pointed out that the curvature of the strings wasn't enoughf (for correct bowing, etc), and that the action was too high, mostly because the rosewood fingerboard has been sanded down quite a bit when it was rid of the deep grooves it gained over the years. So he recommended a new ebony fingerboard and setup. That brings me to my question. Would it be a stylistic "faux pas" to get an ebony board for this blondie Kay? Should I instead get a new rosewood board? Whats the real difference feel/sound wise between the two type of fingerboards? And mainly, would I look stupid puting a shiny new dark black neck (and tailpiece) on an old classic light colored Kay, or is it silly to be worried about that? Am I making sense? Thanks in advance!
