bachandroll Posted April 14, 2007 Report Share Posted April 14, 2007 Hello, friends! I've been lurking for quite awhile, reading all your terrific posts while getting ready for a few projects of mine (more on them soon). My initial question is, what are the pluses and minuses of finishing a rosewood or ebony fretboard with a high gloss poly? I have seen some BEAUTIFUL speaker cabs done this way. For this particular neck, I will probably go with Tru-oil on the back of the neck while going with a glossy poly for the headstock front. I would like the fretboard to be a little shinier than usual, hence the poly thought. Unlike most, I actually LIKE the glossy maple fretboards, but with the smooth feel of Tru-oil or tung oil for the back. Thanks in advance, and I'm hoping to be a very active member! I appreciate your patience as I learn. I do have several books I'm reading, including the Erlewine, and will try not to submit questions that have been asked and answered 100+ times.
