Great bass, soft fingerboard

By Alex Vouri

from Undisclosed

I got this bass because I love my american deluxe ash/maple J bass so much and wanted a fretless version. Its a great bass, very light-weight. The preamp is awesome, super transparent, you can really hear the sound of the bass rather than the exaggerated, almost keyboard-like tones that turn me away from most active basses. I really have nothing but good things to say about this bass except one thing: Why why why put a rosewood fingerboard on fretless bass? I know rosewood has a great mellow tone, but its also an incredibly soft wood, easily marked and scratched. You think Fender would take a chapter from the century old craft of classical instruments and put Ebony on their high-end fretless basses. Ebony being a much more dense hardwood, could give a brighter more direct sound without having to switch from wood-friendly flatwounds to epoxy needing roundwounds. I may someday pay the bucks to have an ebony board put on, but for now, I do love this bass.
