Fingerboard woods?...

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Hackster, Jun 6, 2003.


  1. I know rosewood and ebony, but I'd love to hear descriptions and impressions from you guys who have experience with the more esoteric instruments. Ultimate goal is to find a killer fretless five A/E for a take-to-the-grave axe (for now the Godin will do quite nicely...) but a solid fretless five may be in the cards as well.

    Thoughts?

    My personal current fave is wenge...lots of low midrange growl. Do some searching on TB, there have been a lot of discussions on this subject.
