Finishing A Fingerboard In Gloss?

Recommended Posts

Coco is pretty hard on its own. I would try it without a finish first; start at whatever grit sandpaper you need, then finish-sand down to ~2000, then buff out. I think that's all you'll need.

Getting any kind of clear coat (poly or nitro) to stick on cocobolo can be really tough...ask Drak. If you must have something, go with tru-oil. I have a cocobolo top on my bass proj, that's what I'll be doing (but only because it's laminated with maple).
