Slotted Fingerboard for Martin Guitar

About This Item

25.34" scale • 16" radius • 20 slots
Slotted for Martin Dreadnought guitars, this is the most common acoustic scale length.

Note: Martin Dreadnought scale is commonly referred to as 25.4" but is actually 25.34".

Our kiln-dried fingerboards have flat undersides, are unfretted (no inlays), and ready for trimming to fit a variety of neck widths.

Approximate dimensions: 2-1/2" x 18-3/4" x 15/64" (63.50mm x 476.25mm x 5.95mm)
Scale: 25.34" (643.64mm)
Radius: 16" (406.40mm)
Fret slots: 20 slots, 0.023" wide (0.58mm). Ready to accept our fretwire.

Important:
Ebony is usually not uniformly black.
We offer Black Fingerboard Stain, as used by Gibson®, Paul Reed Smith® and other makers for darkening the streaks on ebony fingerboards, bridges and peghead overlays.

1 out of 5 was great

By

Verified Buyer


These fingerboards aren't bad, but make sure to inspect them before committing to an install. Out of 5 one had a knot that wasn't acceptable. To StewMac's credit they have sent another as a replacement. They always have great customer service, but this review is on the boards and not CS :) 4 stars since 1 out of 5 was flawed. ALSO, make sure to get your fingerboards in before measuring your scale length. This way it all matches .. nut to 12 / 12 to bridge. Always best to be safe.

I am very happy with the fretboard. The wood is beautiful and the craftsmenship is on point. I cut the taper to the neck I built and the length I needed and its ready to go. I recommend this

Dreadnought guitar kit

By

Verified Buyer


I recently ordered the dreadnought guitar kit. It arrived with the fret board having a slight defect.
No worries, one phone call and a new one was on the way. I haven't begun the build yet, but, everything else looks great, and I can certainly vouch for customer service.
Thanks Stew-Mac.

Ebony is excellent...

By

Verified Buyer


Dense and wonderful to work with. The rosewood has been great for years but a recent batch was lightweight and not hard enough to hold on to the fret tangs. They popped loose when I hammered some of the frets flat. We'll see if it's a ongoing problem. BTW, Stewmac was on the ball giving me an immediate account credit.

Solid purchase

No issues. I would note, though, that there is SUBSTANTIAL variation in wood color between boards. Not an issue, but worth noting.

Fingerboard

Verified Buyer


I ordered a guitar kit (Dreadnought) from StewMac and after careful inspection I noticed the fingerboard was defective. It took a short call to customer service to get a new one shipped to me in a few days, in perfect condition, free shipping. I love this company, their product's quality and amazing customer support.
