Roscoe Beck Fingerboard...

  1. Maple or rosewood? Anyone have experience with either on this bass?

    Thanks,

    I just finished playing a Roscoe Beck a few hours ago with a rosewood fingerboard. It's a really great bass, but I don't like the P-neck.

    And that fingerboard is one of the best looking rosewoods I've ever seen.
     
  3. What do you mean by P-neck? The specs say 1.5" radius.

    I'm sorry, I meant that the neck was thicker than what I was looking for. Not as thick as a P-neck, yes, but too thick for my likings.

    The neck shape is asymetrical, thicker of the bass side and thinner on the treble side. The 5-string fretboard is Pao Ferro.

    Correct: pau ferro, a.k.a. morado.
