I have one of the Jaco Signature basses that is fretted. I really like the tone and feel of the bass but I've been thinking that I'd really like to have fretless neck built up for the bass. I'm kinda set on ebony for the board but I wanted to run some cool wood ideas past our guest luthiers to get some idea which way to go. My choices are: Goncalo Alves, Wenge, Padouk or Bubinga. The body is a medium weight Alder so I'd like a neck wood that isn't too heavy. Since the bass is for playing finger-style, a la Jaco, I'd like to get close to that kind of tone.
