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.

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.

i recently ordered two fret boards, one ebony and one rose wood, and the quality was far better i had hoped. the ebony i got was pitch black, there was absolutely no need to stain. highly suggest to anyone.

great piece of wood!

I was surprised that the ebony finger board was so flat.

Stewmac fretboards are a tremendous work saver. Accurate, consistent and I like that they come 24 fret so you can cut and fit them to the job you are working on. EXCELLENT !!!!!!

Good Boards

By acousticplayer from Denver, CO

I have used the ebony and rosewood boards here and from a competitor. For the most part the boards have been great, much easier IMHO than doing your own.

Personally I enjoy the streaks in the ebony and would never dye it but that is obviously my preference.

The only issue I have had is I did have a fretboard with a crack in it that they did replace. The boards have also been fairly dry but once oiled seem to respond with no issues.

Be nice if they offered a planing or thickness service since I don't have that ability at my home shop. I have to use a planer attached to a drill press to thickness properly. Since I do all custom inlay I can only take so much off the top.

Pre-cut Fret Board on 21 Fret Tele Neck

By Strat41 from San Dimas, CA
(Customer's Reviews) Saturday, October 02, 2010

If you plan on using the "one-size fits all" Fender scale fret board for a Tele-style, 21 fret neck, think again. Just like a Tele neck won't fit a Strat neck pocket, a Strat fingerboard can't be cut down to fit a Tele. When cut to the proper length to maintain the required 25-1/2" scale length, one fret slot remains just short of the end of the fret board. A Tele style neck requires a fret board without the extra, 22nd fret slot - Not a problem with a 22 fret neck, but renders this pre-cut fretboard unusable on a 21 fret neck.

Rosewood board

By Colt W. Knight from South Charleston, WV 25309
(Customer's Reviews) Tuesday, September 07, 2010

The milling and dimensions on the board I received were flawless. Much easier than making my own.

I wish the portion above the nut was longer, and I wish SW had oiled the boards a bit better. I received mine very dry.

1062-R fingerboard

By Goodnewsblues from Roseburg, Or
(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, September 02, 2010

I bought this fingerboard for abalone/MOP inlay purposes. The fingerboard is fine, the wood rating is a factor. I found the pores of the rosewood larger than expected and tougher to rout out cleanly. Maybe Ebony next time!
