If I had a choice I would choose ebony every time now, I never owned one until fairly recently and I think it's perfect. Not really sure why it's not more popular.. cost, difficulty in working with, scarcity?
I think it's a cost thing. Isn't it somewhat protected as well?
It’s Mexican version and needs fret and crown work ..was looking for a used older us made. And ya never felt right and I might be a neck snobJust curious, but what's wrong with the neck now that it needs to be upgraded? Is the truss rod wonky and not able to be adjusted? Are the frets worn down?
