Kuntian fingerboard??

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by Milothicus, Apr 1, 2003.


  1. Hello. this question is about a double bass, but i'm not sure if the luthiers keep an eye on that half of TB, so i figured i'd ask here. also, it's more specifically a wood question. i have an opportunity to buy a double bass with a 'kuntian' fingerboard. i was told it's an asian wood that is *ahem* 'somewhat' similar to rosewood. i'm just wondering if anyone has any experience at all with this wood. i'd like to hear opinions from someone who doesn't work for the manufacturer.......... please help.
