I am thinking of having my friend who made me my fretless J build me a custom this summer. As for the wood choices, I am not sure, but this will be a 4 string fretted. The electronics, will be active/passive, and a 3 band, and possibly peizos. The brands and specific styles, I am still unaware about. But I must know if there are any really specific things I should be noting out on certain choices. And what works best with what. For the wood, it'll be have a simple body wood, like ash, alder, mahogony. And a more exotic body wood like Ebony, or Walnut, or some spalted, or flamed top. The neck, I would like to be laminated, but one peice maple may suffice. Just trying to get some ideas down, and running through the head.
