    i want to buy the woods
    i think about these woods:

    Body - Swamp ash
    Neck - wenge/bubinga/rosewood
    fingerboard - Ebony/wenge/rosewood

    which wood you suggest my for the fingerboard&neck?
    what will be the best combination with swamp ash? (fingerboard and neck)
    it will be nice to hear ideas from you!

    Warmoth sells all the stuff for do-it-yourself guitar and bass projects. They have an incredible wealth of info comparing woods, finishes, etc. and describing the differences in sound.
