I just built my second Warmoth J-Bass. My first one was fretless with ebony fingerboard; my new one is fretted with maple fingerboard. I had an issue with the inlays; I ordered white pearloid and I got yellow pearloid. The inlays are not just slightly faded yellow; they're so yellow you can't even see them. . FYI . . . the basses play awesome and look and sound (other than the fact that the inlays are pretty much invisible) awesome. Ken Warmoth has come across as having no understanding of the customer without an attempt to try; he was condescending and insulting. I wish they didn't make such a good product. Has anyone else ever had an issue with Warmoth?
