Epoxying A Fretless Fingerboard


Recommended Posts


I'm currently working on the fretless below, and I've decided to epoxy the fingerboard, because it's made out of pau ferro (a.k.a. santos rosewood), and I don't think it will withstand roundwound strings for too long.

I passed a few shops today, one being a boat supplies shop (I think I heard something about marine epoxy). The first thing I saw was a big (and quite cheap) box of marine epoxy. Then I explained what I wanted it for, and the guy said it wasn't transparent.

What stuff would you guys use to harden the fingerboard? the only epoxy I've seen apart from that is the araldite stuff that's like a sort of paste. Any particular products or brands? (I'm in the UK :D)

thanks in advance,
