MKGBass Posted July 1, 2004 Report Share Posted July 1, 2004 I was in my local woods shop last week and noticed they had a shipment in of macassar ebony, which they don't usually have. Ecstatic, I looked through the stock. There was just ONE board that was absolutely gorgeous, impeccable, even looked like it had a light quilt to it. Since i wanted macassar for one of my upcoming projects, I bought the sucker. It was a little thick so i had it resawn into these two boards... Each measures 4" x 42" x 1/4" just enough for 2 guitar fingerboards, a bass fingerboard, and a nice headstock laminate. and a close up of the "quilt/curly" type pattern So my question is this, when I dampen the board down, the quilt is invisible, granted, the board still looks amazing, but i was wondering if ebony can go unfinished or not. I would like this pattern to show up on the guitars. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
