Metallion Posted September 29, 2007 Report Share Posted September 29, 2007 (edited) I plan to use Walnut for a fretless Bass or Guitar fretboard. Is it sufficiently hard or will it wear too fast? The Walnut Strat had walnut fretboard, but fretted, naturally. Alternatively I can use Mahogany - not as good-looking though, too light. Rosewood [Dalbergia spp] (probably Indian [Dalbergia Latifolia] ) is the alternative I most would prefer, but I know of NO retailers in Sweden (who sells Non-bulk). Who is the best European Seller regarding Shipping Costs and Rosewood prices, for smaller volumes? Any Euro Shops who sells these as short as 1m and at least 60mm wide: ? Bubinga (African Rosewood) Ebony (African, Indian) Lignum Vitae (Pockenholz) Padouk Jakaranda Rio (Brazilian Rosewood) Teak Venge, Wengé, Panga-panga Tulipwood (Pinkwood) Bubinga Amarant Cocobolo [Dalbergia Retus] Kingwood [Dalbergia Cearensis] African Blackwood [Dalbergia Melanoxylon] African Padauk (Camwood, Barwood) Damson tree [Terminalia spp] < Indisk Lager > Edited September 29, 2007 by Metallion Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
