what do you think about that?
Would roundwound strings be bad for the wood?
We actually have a 9 string Fretless SC being built for a customer with Asian Ebony top and Finger board.....
It will be a while before pictures ever surface, but it will be very sweet and the Asian Ebony is very nice and strong.
The strings never touch the wood, right?
I've been looking at some asian ebony at Gilmerwood lately. Pretty cool looking stuff. Thinking about throwing it on the back of an upcoming bass. Not sure though. It would have to be the type that has the green and brown figuring in it.
anybody has an Ebony fingerboard on a fretted bass?
Ebony is a very hard wood. If an ebony board can handle the strings on a fretless, how much more so on fretted?
Yes, I have a bass with a Warmoth neck with ebony fretboard. It's great.
I have a DiPinto Belvedere Standard, which is semi-hollow and fretted with ebony fretboard. Love it. I wish it were an option on more basses.
I can't wait to see this!
There is no worry with roundwounds on a fretted ebony board. Ebony is one of the hardest woods available, so the wood on most bass fretboards other than ebony are more vulnerable to roundwound wear.
