I mean, would an ebony fingerboard defeat the purpose of mahogany? As in, to the point that there would be no real difference from having an ash or alder body? :confused: I like some warmth but I don't like the bottom-scraping chunka-chunka of most nu-metal/hardcore these days.
I've always been into swamp ash... which is almost universally the best material for bass bodies (unless you want to do the ultra-low chunka chunka thing)... but I want to get a baritone guitar and I'm wondering if they have
to be constructed of mahogany with a similarly warm fingerboard (i.e. rosewood) in order to be sufficiently baritone (within the universe of six-string guitars that aren't called bass guitars).
I've been looking at the Les Paul studio baritone, which is why I started this thread.
