    My first good bass was a 70's fender jazz with a maple neck and pearl block inlays.
    A stunner. Had to give it up long ago.
    Show us yours!

    The seafoam/teal esp is the only one I got with the Pearl/cream inlay. It's a great bass.

    I know the abalone is darker. I really love the look of pearl block inlays on maple. That would go great with an Olympic white body.

    i don't think EatS1stBassist would mind if i bragged a bit on his ax. also: i like keeping fretless axes in the mix on threads like this! :D so, no blocks, but a cool fretless maple board with inlays just the same!

    here's a beauty, belongs to our very own eats1stbassist:

    Atelier Z I used to own. Very nice playing 6 string Jazz Bass. I had a Sadowsky preamp in it, which was a huge upgrade over the stock preamp.

    I sadly don't own any maple board, block inlay instruments. I've always wanted one, though, and fully intend to in the somewhat near future.

    It's a real problem for me. One I'll rectify at my earliest convenience.

    Are US G&L necks all quartersawn, or does yours just happen to be? I have a Music Man that just happens to be, I don't think they were ever specifically sold that way. Gorgeous bass, by the way.
