: Hi, I am a trumpet player who just started playing bass. I know that equipment is
: a factor that everybody faces at any level. I was wondering when I decide to buy
: that special bass, what kind of woods should I check out? Also, I would like to
: know the differences between the woods as far as sound and etc. is concerned?
: I go to different websites and they just talk about where the woods came from
: instead of what they'll actually do for a player. Help?

: Hey Quinn!!!
With my limited experience a can tell you that maple fingerboards are awsome (bright sound: I used to have a middle 80īs Precision bass and it sounded great (it still sounds, I guess...I sold it)

Then I bought a Musicman with rosewood fingerboard that has a more "dark" tone than the first. But as itīs already said, electronics play an important role on the sound.
