What Are The Pluses Of Zebrawood Fretboard

Recommended Posts

I am trying to decide what I want my fretboard to be. I have already decided that it is going to be a 25" inch scale. The neck is a through-neck limba/purpleheart/limba laminate. My choices at this point are zebrawood, pau ferro, maple, or purpleheart. Though I admit these choices are from a purely cosmetic position. Any suggestions which would better suit the proposed instrument would be greatly appreciated.

Clear sustaining tone, density, and good looks are it's Pluses.

Negatives would be it's course, open-pored feel.

Great choice on the purpleheart and limba, btw, both are great tonewoods that match well.

You might consider Wenge for the fretboard. Think of it as a darker looking version of Zebrawood, but it's a little smoother and has more bass to it.
