    I've been researching this stuff after it being suggested as a great fretless fingerboard by Rob Elrick. Very pretty wood that's rarely discussed.
    So show some pics of basses with pink ivorywood fretboards (or pickup covers)!

    Here's the Nordstrand Spruce fretless:

    The bottom of this page has an acoustic with pink ivory FB/headcap/Bridge. Not a bass and not great pics but still an awesome instrument... looks 10x better in real life.

    Ya, it does get a little bit grimy. Cleans up pretty good with steel wool though.
    But, it sounds amazing as a fretless. Jeez, I miss that Spruce Goose...

    I just had to see what Pink Ivorywood looked like. Hmmm... I like it. It makes me think of Pepto-bismol.

    Whoa!! That's gonna cost a pretty penny!
     
  13. Carey, et al,

    Here's the 4-string Nordie I just took in on trade. No problem with grimey ivory here.....it's still pristine and sounds/plays awesome.

    One more comment like that and you could end up on the Fender forum. :) Two more comments like that and you could end up on the Tele Discussion Page.
