I just bought a cheap Sterling by MusicMan stingray bass. The descriptions on several sites say the fretboard is Jatoba. But the fingerboard wood doesn’t have the reddish/Orange color that most of the Ibanez guitars than I’ve seen have.

The pores are really tight and the color is really dark, almost black. Looks like a nice dark piece of Rosewood. The grain looks like rosewood, and it is dark like induced Macassar ebony. We will see if it is dyed, when I play it and my fingers turn black.
