25.5" scale • 12" radius • 24 slots + nut slot
Each fingerboard is radiused and extended to include a 1/8" flat-bottomed nut slot, Fender style.

Tip: Saw the fingerboard shorter at the 2nd fret (at the nut end) to install it on a Gibson 22-3/4" short scale guitar.

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

Approximate dimensions: 2-3/8" x 20-3/8" x 15/64" (60.32mm x 517.53mm x 5.95mm)
Radius: 12" (304.80mm)
Fret slots: 24 slots, 0.023" wide (0.58mm). Ready to accept our fretwire.
Nut slot: 1/8" wide (3.18mm)

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.

Great boards

By JimmyE from Big Spring, TX

I've bought a few of these, they always have awesome and unique good looking grain, and are precision made. I would recommend buying these instead of making your own.

Quel gain de temps !

TrFs bon produit!
Insistez bien lors de la commande sur le visuel attendu de la touche. Le bois etant un produit naturel on peut parfois se retrouver avec une touche comportant des spots disgracieux.

Ebony fretboard 25.5

Great board. Nice, dark ebony. Good grain, probably no need for staining.

25.5' Maple slotted fret board

(Customer's Reviews) Friday, November 25, 2011

I purchased a stew-mac 25.5" fret scale with the intention of cutting my own board. After several tries, I found it very difficult to cut the slots dead on. I ordered a stew-mac 25.5" maple slotted fret board. When I compared it with fret scale the slots were slightly off. Stew-mac promptly replaced it with another board. The new board was exactly the same as the first, so you might want to check your board before you glue it down. Of course it could be the scale that is off. I'm still puzzled.

Well spent investment

Considering what it takes to make your own fingerboards, these are simply the cheapest way to go at it. I found the rosewood ones to be selected from attractive stocks and plenty thick for sanding. I have occasionally come across boards which didn't have the right radius, perhaps something got mixed-up... Overall, the quality of these fingerboards is top.

just recieved an ebony fretboard today. the ebony board was excellent for my first build, shame the unslotted boards are more expensive. the wood was perfectly radiused and mostly black

Great Quality

I ordered the rosewood fingerboard and couldn't be happier with what I got. The softer wood sands down quickly so just don't rush through cutting and finishing it, or it might turn out too skinny.

Throat too deep.....

By Fred Mai from Nice, France
(Customer's Reviews) Tuesday, June 21, 2011

Yes, la gorge qui acceuille le sillet est trop profonde, legerement, mais c'est suffisant pour etre genant cotT MI grave. C'est le seul reproche, tout le reste it is very good

Fret Not!

By Eric C. from Las Vegas,Nv.
(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, May 05, 2011

These fingerboards are cut accurately and the scale is accurate but i must say that the last rosewood board i bought was a little on the "dull" looking side compared to the ones in the past. Other that that,they are well made.
