    Maple vs Ebony

    I was recently shopping the CS section of Warwick's webpage. I noticed that maple fretboards need to have a finish but ebony does not. Do these two woods sound the same? I could save money if I don't have to finish the fingerboard with Ebony. Thanks.

    What do the maple starbasses sound like?

    I'm really curious about these. Are they really thuddy and a typical hollowbody? or are they like hollowbody guitars? Bright, chimey and airy. If it can do both, i'd be really happy with one =D. I like lots of sounds...so lots of GAS :twisted:

    Is flamed maple softer than non flamed maple?

    I heard from a friend (who has a fairly trust worthy opinion) that the more flamed a piece of maple is the softer the wood is. He said that that's why a lot of people like the sound of vintage Gibson Les Pauls because they don't have the flamed top on them. I also noticed that Elrick uses a...

    Removing stain on birdseye maple

    The previous owner of my Infinity didn't seem to ever wax the bass. Because of this his thumb has left a dirty stain above the fron pickup in the beautiful maple top. Has anyone got any ideas for removing this?
