    I am a very picky person, especially when it comes to my basses. I am having problems shopping for a 5 fretless because I like my fretless fingerboards made of ebony, but I like my pickup configuration MM/J.

    Which do you think is more important to the sound?

    Note: I intentionally did not post a poll.
    Also Note: Carvin Basses are not an option.

    Fretless with ebony board is a custom order - and it is at no additional charge

    Though I dont have one of these (but I have considered them for a while, but decided to rather get a 6er - and didnt regret it), I have heard many good opinions on these on TB lately. Do a search and you'll find it
