    I haven't been all that impressed with most of the spalted wood basses I've seen in the past. But those pictured so far in this thread are beautiful. Maybe my tastes are changeing, or that look is growing on me. Or perhaps these are just exceptional examples.

    JP Basses, the serial numbers are actually dates, right?
    December 31, 2002 and April 12, 2003.
    Completion date, maybe?

    Anyone know where I can buy spalted maple for a bass top? I'm putting together a Jazz with maple neck with black binding and block, and thought that it would look cool on a body with a spalted maple top but am having trouble finding one.

    Warmoth has it, but they won't show me the top before they build a body, and with spalted maple varying so much in color and figure, I don't want to take the chance.
