I have a few fretless basses, my oldest is a warmoth parts jazz (P+J pickups) with an ash body, maple neck, fretless maple board. The board was lightly coated by a local luthier. I also have a parts jazz with a mighty mite body (maple), warmoth maple neck, ebony board. I also have a USA JO that I had converted at the Pedulla shop (buzz coating). I think I like the maple the best, it's certainly the brightest and woodiest. Anybody prefer maple fretless and why? I want to have something built, or do another parts bass and I'm trying to decide on the fingerboard. My jazz with the maple body is just a bit too harsh, is that something maple bodies are known for? Thanks!
