    Hi,
    I'm thinking of getting an Azola Bugbass II soon and would like some advice.Should I get the stock rosewood fingerboard or spend $250 more for the ebony?I understand that the ebony wears longer and has a faster attack than the rosewood,so I'm wondering if that is a wise choice.For those Azola bugbass owners,is the rosewood adequate?Any fingerboard wear or other complaints?
    I'll be playing jazz,blues and latin style on it.Is ebony the better choice?Thanks in advance.
