Abalone Markers And Ebony Dye

Recommended Posts

I am in the way early stages of planning my next build and was wondering if the ebony dye goes on the fret board before or after the abalone inlays go in. Are thier pros and cons doing it each way? Is one way better than another?

The reason I'm asking this is because it sounds to me like the almost black ebony is all but gone and I may have to use a lower quality that may have different colors in it. I'm okay with that, but when I do the inlay work and use black epoxy to set them in, I think I may wind up using the dye to blend the black epoxy to the fret board if it isn't black.

Please advise,

Brad in Akron
