Very curious as to the TB community's though on fretless fingerboards. Do you like ebony? Rosewood? Ebonol? Maple? Coated? Something more [DEL]erotic[/DEL] exotic such as diamondwood? What do you prefer? Why? Personally a coated board (in the Pedulla Buzz style) is my favourite. Mainly as I am predominantly a fretted player, so I can slap roundrounds on a coated board and cover almost all fretted and fretless bass tones. I also love ebony with flats or tapes for that old school or upright sound. I have owned rosewood and maple fretless basses (generally Fender P or Stingrays) and wasn't a huge fan.
