I recently talked to Warmoth about these basses. I thought it would make a great fretless 5. My only concern was that having a large maple or pau ferro inlay on a ebony fretless fingerboard. I thought this would mess with the sound. I was especially concerned because it was around the 12th fret which is a critical area on a fretless, IMO. So I asked if they would do a Striped ebony fb with a Gaboon ebony inlay. The rep said no because they manufacture the boards in batches. I thought this was kind of ridiculous since I never see a fretless neck in the 'in-stock' section. Do you think this could be a problem? Any suggestions for a solution?
