    The fingerboard on one of my upright basses has a lovely light streak in it. I consider it a plus although some don't. I adore figured wood of all species.

    My Bongo 6 HH has a beautiful rosewood fingerboard with moderate figure. Wood. I love the stuff.

    I have owned three stealth models, Bongo 5, stingray 4 and a sterling 5. The ray had a slo neck with ebony fb. The other two had rosewood. Funny thing the ray wasn't marked as a slo as it was made before the logo was put on the peghead. The stealth matte finish eventually gets shiny from use. Loved all three!

    Lucky for me, i *like* the lighter and streakier variants. (Though i must say a jet black chunk of ebony does look awesome in the right situations.) I would actually like an unlined fretless bass with a persimmon board, which is in the ebony family but *really* light (tending toward white with streaks and swirls).

    Because this bass should be a Bongo 4 HH from 2005 in Sapphire Black with Rosewood fretboard.
    I've seen a fair number of listings of "stealth" basses for sale which turned out to be Sapphire Black. I wonder if the phrase was used in some of their marketing. They pretty much all had chrome hardware and weren't particulary stealthy except for the dark grey color.
