Mike.Mara Posted April 10, 2017 Report Share Posted April 10, 2017 I'm about to make a fretboard for my 28" scale baritone... Also my first build. (Build thread to come, I want to almost finish it before I start since it can take me weeks between stages and if any one is interested that much of a wait can be a bit much.) My question is... It's a hard maple fretboard (I was going to have rosewood but the guy on Ebay I bought a blank from sent me a wonky, wedge-shaped, rough-sawn... Extremely rough-sawn and most annoyingly damp piece. So I've decided to go with maple since I have alot and know it's dry. I know black walnut isn't suitable for a fretboard itself, But would it work as an inlay? Is it too soft and would wear too fast? I don't want to go through all the effort and time of making a guitar only for the inlays to be my downfall... Thanks, Mike. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
