ebony body tops??

  1. Anybody ever seen one or have one or have a picture of one? I am curious because you always hear about ebony fretboards but never an ebony body. Thanks
  2. I have seen several, namely Foderas, Smiths and R basses. Here is a Ken Smith with an ebony top.

    This is my '80s Alembic Persuader w/ ebony top.
    Can't really comment on how much it influences the tone, but I like looking at it...
    hard to photograph though.
