I've got a question for some of you experiened luthiers... I'm doing my first self-build, & was recently told by someone (on a diff site) that they thought my bass is bound to experience a good amount of neck dive. Consequently, the guy was trying to change my mind, in materials choices... Basically, he tried to talk me out of an ebony FB, in favor of a pau ferro fb... Here's what I've planned: Body - Warmoth Dinky J made of Black Korina Neck - USACG J-bass specs made of quartersawn wenge w/ ebony fingerboard Hardware - Gotoh 206 "string thru" bridge, & Hipshot Ultralite tuners. Electronics - Bart PJ config, NTBT pre-amp running at 9v. First off, IMHO, I just don't think Pau Ferro would look all that great on top of a wenge neck...whereas ebony looks like it belongs on wenge. Secondly, I know ebony isn't exactly light, but changing a fingerboard wood, isn't really going to save me any true weight savings,,,, right? Thirdly, lets assume for a minute that, it MIGHT save me a half-pound to switch woods (which, I think is silly, but...) the weight difference would be spread over the entire surface of the neck,, & would be heavier the closer it got to the body, because the neck is wider there... Now, with all this said, I know alot of you guys have used this combination of woods, & I also know Black Korina can vary greatly... & I won't know for CERTAIN, until I have the neck & body in my hands. BUT, given a best guess, am I asking for balance problems with this config?
