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.

A note about ebony:
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 when desired.

Timesaving and accurate. Accepts Stew-mac wire perfectly.


No Regrets

This is the perfect thing for finishing a project in a rush or for the "lazy" novice. Comes with a nice smooth surface than is easy to finish off, grain was very nice in mine.


Turned out sweet!

(Customer's Reviews)

I used the ebony FB on my first build along with some abalone inlays. Fret slotting was spot on with my existing pre cut FB. Little tip, shape the board to the neck before you inlay, these come quite a bit wide. I hit some small knots with my hand plane and the knots kind of fell apart (really hard stuff) I had already did my inlays and had to offset a bit to sand out the bad knot spots. So now my inlay center line is off. Wish I would have fit it first. Luckily I shaped both sides together and had a bit to spare, sucks the knots were right on my line. Fretted really nice sounds good on the guitar.
