Hi,

This is my first post on this fine board here. I'm wondering if you'd educate me as two two things:

a) is ebony preferable to rosewood for a fingerboard? what are the sonic characterstics of either?

b) how can you tell if a double bass (or sections thereof) are carved/solid versus laminate?

Thanks in advance
