    Hey guys!

    I was on here a while ago, asking whether a mahogany bodied bass would sound good... well I've completely changed my mind on what I want.

    I'm considering an ebony fingerboard, maple neckthrough with a brazilian rosewood body and a Duncan music man pickup with the active tone circuit...

    What do you think? I know a person that sells brazilian rosewood cheaply, so cost isn't a problem. It's gonna be heavy, but since it's neckthrough, tiny weight holes that won't affect tone can reduce the weight if needed. It would look great, and should sound cool!

    I'm looking for a unique sound, but one that is great for mainly hard rock. I like a punchy articulate tone, which is also great for slapping. Do you think this wood combination will do it for me?
