fretless bass project

Recommended Posts

hello there,

im about to start work on my third guitar, a 4 string fretless bass.

but first i need to ask a few questions, B)

What, in your own opinion, would be the most suitable pickup type?

i am kinda in love with J-bass single coil pups, but also like the smoothness of humbuckers.

What do you think would be the best for a real mellow fretless tone.

also i have made an african mahogany body blank and plan on making the neck out of maple, does this sound like a decent combo?

finally, fretboard, Am i right in saying that ebony is best for a fretless bass due to the fact that it is really hard and wont get damaged by the string as easily, or is there a harder wood available?


John. :D
