    I'd like to see a bass with a really dark clored neck with no pearl dots or block inlays. You know as if it were a fretless neck but with frets. Has anyone seen one of those?

    My new fretted Jazz has a Status graphite neck, phenolic black fingerboard with no dot markers. Will post pics when it's finished in the next few days (whoopee!)

    The Fender Aerodyne bass in black has no fret markers. The fingerboard on the two I've played hasn't been real dark tho.

    I would much rather have nothing on the fretboard
     
  6. As someone said, the Export model Fender Aerodyne, which is a very sexy bass, and as someone said, it has a dark neck, yes, its darkened rosewood

    Most of the basses I own have no top markings. I don't look at the top of the board so they're unecessary for me.

  15. Brad J. i would have to say, i love that bass!! i saw a review of it in BP mag, i don't normally like single cutaway bass', or 6 strings for that matter, but if i ever bought one, that would be it *pictures himself playing Master Of Puppets on it*
