Which neck/fret to body match: tonewoods

    I have two basses:

    Fender Jazz Dlx -active electronics, recently fretless: Alder bod with Rosewood fretboard.

    SX 75..... - passive: Ash bod w/ Maple fretboard w/ inlays

    Would I be better off putting the maple/maple fretted neck (SX) onto the Alder Jazz Dlx body? I think the active tone settings are much better suited to the fretted neck and playing. IMHO the maple FB will be a great match. Looking to range from Geddy and Wetton-to classic old school type tones.

    W/ the fretless, my tone will mostly stay the same. Passive will suffice.

    I do realize that the necks will require some minor alterations to make the fit.

    Which artists use a fretless Ash with Rosewood FB?
