    I'm guessing that's a scrubbed ash or malpe?

    They calle it "Antique Ash Treatment" or "AAT". Its like a dark grey/graphite colored stain which they cover the ash with. And then they use an electric sander to sand it back to taste. Some of them come out pretty wild. Some are more mild. Depends upon the piece of wood, but also the discretion of the person sanding.

    The neck is Walnut with White Limba (Korina) stripes.

    Nice - focus on left hand positioning and ear-training and once that becomes natural your prior bass-playing knowledge will take over. That and strengthening your hands!

  15. Plays like butter. Have played many basses in the past. This one is by far the best neck, at least for my hands.
