Ok, I was putzing around in GC this past weekend & fell in love w/ a fretless bass w/ an unlined ebony fingerboard. It was new, & frankly, I've no intention of buying a new bass right now. HOWEVER.... I have been considering a new neck for my warmoth PJ... what I was originally WANTING, was birdseye maple neck, birdseye maple fingerboard, mother of pearl block inlay.... My question is, how well does maple.... birdseye maple... hold up as a fingerboard wood... on a fretless neck... Not realistic? or Doable... or what. I'm wanting birdseye maple of asthetic reasons... but ebony sure does seem like the fingerboard wood of choice,, from a playability stand point.
