I was just hoping you guys might have some suggestions for a tailpiece. My bass is an old 3/4 German flat-back if that makes a difference. My luthier said it's mostly a personal preference, but explained to me that often, lighter woods actually make the instrument sound more live, but ebony is still the most desireable. Basically, I'm interested in the best sound possible (while still keeping a dark color to match the ebony fingerboard. Whether it's violin style (hidden tailpiece gut) or the wire comes throught the front of the tail piece, french, or hillstyle, what do you guys think works best?
