About This Item

Kiln-dried ebony and rosewood. Flat, unfretted (no inlays) and ready for trimming in your shop to fit a variety of neck widths.

Perfect for slotting custom fret scales.

Approximate dimensions:
2-3/8" x 20" x 15/64" (60.32mm x 508mm x 5.95mm)

Terrible!!

This unslotted fingerboard came in with deep saw marks on both sides. It would have to go through a planer to correct it. Nor even deserving of one star.

Excellent fretboard blank!

Quality Rosewood fretboards are very scarce. I recently ordered two and I'm really happy with the quality and price Stewmac offered me.

Nice grain but planed too thin

By

Verified Buyer


Normally I have to do the final thickness plane on these fingerboards, but this one was already done. Unfortunately, it was too thin. By the time I sanded for the radius it was too thin for binding. This is not the normal experience I've had, this is the first time this has happened but I wanted to be honest about the review.

Seriously?

The rosewood arrived quickly. I give them that. The grain is not tight, not straight, and the color is a mix of brown and purple.There is lots of grain runoff. It is also thinner then specs on one end with snipe where I assume someone tried to flatten on a jointer. This will require me to take a thin piece and make it even thinner.

Response from StewMac


We are sorry to hear that you were not happy with the quality of this fingerboard. It looks like you sent us an email regarding this. We should have sent you a prepaid label to send that back to us. Please let us know if you would like a replacement, we would be happy to provide you with one.

Perfectly corrected.

I ordered an unslotted ebony fingerboard and had it shipped to switzerland. when it got here, I received it, but only after a few months did I have time to take a good look at it. It turned out that it was strongly bent and almost unusable. I wrote to StewMac and told them all about it and they immediately sent me a replacement, free of charge, free of shipping and free of boarder taxes, and it got here withing a few days. They had selected a straight grained piece from their stock and it looks great. Thank you.

Nice fret board blanks!

By

Verified Buyer


These blanks are nice! They are excellent grain, good color, straight and some of the best I've used in my 28 years of building guitars. The thickness is just right for working them on down to their final radius and thickness. No extra work here! The ebony and rosewood are top notch materials! The service is great and shipping is very quick, no waiting too long to get going on a job. Thanks Stew-Mac!
