Which Ebony For Fingerboard


Recommended Posts

nice gaboon is pure black, expensive as crap.

macassar is striped ebony, cheaper but still expensive.

*most* people oil their fretboards heavily or use the stewmac fingerboard dye, which turns it pure black anyways. sooo i dont know if you want to pay the extra $ and not be able to see a difference when you finish it.

i got the 24 fret board from stewmac. part number 4655 i think. and its pretty dark to begin with, and thats 400 roughed out.

edit: im using macassar on a neck/body back, check out my thread in 'in progress' if you want to see what the color of it looks like. however, my fingerboard from stewmac looks way diff, as you can see there.
