    hey all,

    after hearing my bud rock the funk fingerstylie on his maple/ash olympic white Pbass, i've been dying to get one similar, but in maybe a PJ combo, and with maybe a different wood.

    i was wondering tho, how would a swamp ash body match up with an ebony fingerboard? would it be too much upper mids & high end?

    i just want a pbass that has the clarity of my friend's Maple/Ash, but with a slight twist. already have my Jazz ash/maple bases covered.

    should i go with a rosewood board with the ash body to try something different?

    appreciate the input.

    My P bass has rosewood and ash body, if you're ever around Newtown, tell me beforehand and I'll bring it down
