So, here we are again, asking about fretless through necks and graphite necks on an online chatroom of bassists. In any case, the story is I am looking a warm, fretless 5 ( with no fret markers ), that would have good sustain, and an innovative body design. I tried playing lots of different fretless basses, but couldn't find one I liked under $2000. So anyway I want to build one instead and have some experiance, but not enough that I feel comfortable making the neck from scratch. I am looking for something light weight, but still with good sustain (as in a through neck). And I was first drawn to graphite basses, emailed status and moses, status said they wont do neck throughs and moses never replied, and now we are here. I am ok with a non graphite as long as it's relatively lightweight so I looked at carvin and am seriously considering ordering a neck from them. So anybody have any experience with these necks and any graphite/wood alternatives?
