Fretboard Extravaganza

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to give this a bump - I received 4 fretboards from Erik today (Mac. Ebony, Mad. Rosewood, Birdseye Maple and Ziricote) and all are superb. Perfectly accurate and exactly on the dimensions I asked for!

I am a very happy customer :D

Cheers Erik!

+1 on that bump. My friend and I just our Ziricote fretboards done and they look absolutely amazing and I can't wait to get them on an instrument. One bass board will be a replacement for a friends Peavey that I'm fixing and the other guitar scale will be for my next build. Very nice stuff, will post some pics at some point. Really excellent work, will be sending off for another board more than likely soon as I'm planning my friends wife's guitar, body is already on the way, so gotta get a fretboard going soon here. Anyhow, Erik does great work, far and away my first choice. Jason

The order form linked on the first page of this thread is up-to-date to reflect the new reality in ebony prices. It should have a small "v. 11/2008" in the upper-left, that's the most recent version.

Or email me and I'll send you one.

If any of you guys are far enough along in your projects, post some photos!!

I'll kick it off - you've probably already seen this one, hope Perry doesn't mind a few more props - this is a killer axe! Ziricote fretboard on this one (Perry did his own slotting, radiusing and scalloping artistry).

Just found some stock from last year available for fretboards - the top one is lacewood, the bottom one ziricote. I also have a 5" wide version of the lacewood if anyone's in the mood for an extended-range bass. And lots more bloodwood.

Some more fingerboards from the latest batch - opposite ends of the scale length range.

These are 17" scale (same as a tenor uke). Top-to-bottom are 2 bloodwoods, cocobolo and bocote.

These are 34" bass scale, except for bottom one (guitar scale). Top-to-bottom are 2 bloodwoods, east indian rosewood, and QS wenge (guitar).

Finally, some fretless fingerboards, extra-wide at 4"+. Top-to-bottom are 2 xylia lace (hard as nails but machines beautifully), acrylicized spalted maple, bloodwood and birdseye maple.

Erik,

Shoot me an email with your order form with pricing, or your phone#. I have some upcoming builds, and work for other builders that I will need boards for.

Thanks, Doug

Erik - looking to order; I had the spreadsheet at one point; but can't find where I put it. The links on the first page aren't working for me, I'm getting an invalid file error from Mediafire.

Temporary insanity on my part (forgot to upload the new form) - it is fixed now.

If you still have problems, email me through PG.

I don't think at this point, any more vouching for Erik's service is needed, but I just got my cocobolo fretboard in the mail today, and it's awesome.

I gave Erik a rough idea of what I was looking for as far the cut of wood goes and such, and he got it perfect. Professionally done, and showed up a lot quicker than I thought it would. Everythings perfectly squared centered and it's right to specs. Awesome!

I can't wait to start building the neck to my next build.

Thanks J :D

Oh, and by the way - if you're thinking of building a Corvus with that board, I'm going to send you a bill for an extra $100 :D

For a gem like a Corvus, it'd be worth it. B)
