  1. I just love them.
    Do you have a bass with a maple fingerboard? Show it!

    Here's mine:

  7. (Just ran to my bass to feel up the inlays.) No, they're literal inlays. Bits of different material.

  8. That bass has the most knobs I've seen so far. Quite a beauty, BTW

  11. Not at the moment but I’ve had a few. Most recently this SR5
    0640B776-303B-435D-85FC-E3F1969459A9.jpeg I do have one on the way though. Hopefully it’ll be here this week or next. Dealers are selling them faster than dingwall is making them. Just glad I don’t have wait 8 months like some people have. 18DA3C58-3853-4183-B9C3-D80C7917A4AE.jpeg I had a thing for ebony boards for a long time but lately I’ve been more into maple. Never really been a fan of brown fingerboards although I do think they look good with some finishes. But I really don’t like how they look on satin, matte, black or sparkle finishes.

    Next purchase will likely be another Mexican fender with a maple neck for an affordable but but solid low maintenance backup. Something like this
