fehgalloway Posted August 12, 2004 Report Share Posted August 12, 2004 Hello all, I have some really basic questions about finishing a fretboard... What do you finish it with? I have three guitars, two strat copies, one with a maple fretboard, the other with rosewood, and a Yamaha Acoustic, rosewood. The maple seems to have a thin clear coat on it, but both the rosewoods seem to be unfinished..?? Is this right? What should I do to finish the fretboard? I'm presuming you don't laquer it or anything? I've got two pieces of timber that I'm currently working on for the fretboard: Both native Australian, so USA people, you mightn't know what they are: Cooktown Ironwood and Blackbean. I've planed both of them down so they are flat, and I've sanded them up to 2000grit, and wet sanded them. They are shiny so that you can see a good reflection in them. NICE Is this ok? is it too much? does it need to be oiled/polished/laquered??? Thanks very much for your help! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
