I'm putting together a fretless precision parts bass and I need some help deciding which fingerboard wood to use. I'm currently in a biding war on the bay for a p bass body and i've got the pickups, bridge, tuning machines, pots, wiring kit, knobs, and all that good stuff on order, but I've reached a dilemma on the neck. I love the look of the early 70's p-basses with unlined maple boards. Something about it just catches my eye. I'm pretty sure I'm going to order a neck from Warmoth, so I called them and the sales rep pretty much talked me out of doing the maple board because I would wear through it quickly. So my question to you guys is... Should i go with the maple board and possibly epoxy it? or should i just choose a different wood perhaps ebony, rosewood, pao ferro, or bloodwood? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.
