I've been considering a build for a while. Brainstorming with the dressing room I came up with this:

I don't know... is that binding on a maple fingerboard? I don't know about that.

I'd like it fine with the typical rosewood, though.

I agree with Larry, but I'd suggest trying it with black binding and maybe black blocks too, just to see if you like it. Otherwise, if it were me, I'd keep it as is without any binding, and swap the black guard out for mint. ::)
The cool thing about fretless is you can hit a note...and then renegotiate.

I wanted to see what black D+B would look like on maple but that was my only option. I actually like the mismatch but I would more than likely go unbound, especially with maple. Also, I love tort, but I can't deny that OTM/black anodized combo

I would go no binding on that. Black dot inlays. I like it. Its not crazy amazing, but if I saw a used one in my price range I would buy it :)

I dig it, though I prefer Black 3ply over Black Anodised. Here's something similar I came up with a while back when debating how to paint my Jazz Bass:
