Thread subject: statii.com: For all things Status-Graphite :: Phenolic Fingerboard
Posted by cecoulter on 22-10-2020 16:19
I have a Status Fretless bass that has a graphite neck and phenolic board. I bought it new in 2008 and play it all the time. I play a lot of upright bass, so I have medium gauge round wound strings in the fretless. There are a few marks on the phenolic fingerboard but nothing to worry about and definitely much better than having a wood fingerboard.... I think phenolic fingerboards are the main reason to get a Status fretless.
I definitely would not coat the neck.
Hope this helps,
