    I'm having a new bass built for me by a regular poster here on TB...he does great inlay work, but has not yet done a board with typical Fender-style 70's J Bass blocks. I'd like the blocks on my new bass to resemble that time period as much as possible. Does anyone here know of a good source to send a fingerboard to that has been slotted and prepped? I'd like to have them cut and install pearloid blocks. I'm going to use a macassar ebony board, and also don't have access to the proper block material....any clues?? Please let me knoe ASAP!
    Thanks!:D

    yep JC, Gurian Instruments does really fine inlay work. Mail mail and I'll give you their e-mail cause I think the website is not up and running yet!

    You could ask Adrian Garcia too. His USACG bass neck was sent out to receive this kind of inlays...

    Peace, JP

    I believe that USACG has a $100 upcharge for the block inlay mod. I purchased the parts for my "Fendowsky" from Tommy and ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! They're great guys to work with and produce a fantastic product. If you go with USACG you won't be disappointed.
