I just ordered a new Roscoe SKB 3005 with a spalted maple top from Blueberry Hill Basses (thanks Jay!) and want to get some opinions on my choice of fingerboard wood. I'm really trying to duplicate the sound that I got from my Roscoe SKB 3006 that I just sold (Spanish cedar body w/quilt maple top, birds eye maple FB and Demeter pre). As you can see by the pictures, the spalted maple top is pretty busy and I don't want the neck wood to compete with the top. I want something obviously that will sound fairly close to the birds eye maple but also something that complements the top and transitions well to the headstock spalted maple laminate. With Gard, Keith and the rest of the Roscoe shop's help, I've pretty much decided on the African Tulipwood but I'd really appreciate your feedback. Let me know what you would chose and why. Thanks!
