    come on, i’m asking you to send pictures!!! :thumbsup: i have a maple fingerboard walnut jazz on the way so i’ll soon be able to show mine off in due time, but how many of you guys chose a maple fretboard on a nice jazz bass as opposed to the usual rosewood fretboard?

    i found this oddity online some time ago. part of me really wishes they had the maple fretboard option in the 60s because something about maple fretboard 60s jazz basses just looks kinda cool.

    29FE1324-7256-4F03-A571-BB90379A3C72.jpeg Fender AmStd in Olympic White with an aftermarket guard and d-tuner. Really sweet neck on this; I just wish the pups were a hair thicker and more aggressive. Great all around bass.
