I will be purchasing a custom bass in the near future and am trying to pick a wood facing. Everything else has been pretty much chosen. Here are a few specs for the curious : Body - Mahogany (most likely) or Spanish Cedar (possibly). Pickups - Bartolini Jazz. Preamp - Aguilar OBP-3. Fretboard - Morado / Pau Ferrao. First, I would like to say I realize this is purely a cosmetic issue. Background of My Taste : I tend to favor a conservative look (currently own Swamp Ash - Amber finish) but am interested in viewing more exotics (owned a Corvette Standard - Bubinga (fairly plain exotic if it can be considered that). Don't really like Quilted, Burled or Birdseye types...Prefer a lighter facing wood to contrast with the fretboard. Now to the point : Just wondering if anyone can reccomend sites for viewing woods - suppliers etc. I have looked quite a bit and from what I have gathered pieces vary greatly (color misrepresentations, varying species etc.) and it is best to see the individual piece before choosing. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Yes I have considered no facing at all.
