Turned out to be very good

By Mikael Sundberg from +ûrebro, Sweden
(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, April 25, 2013

I bought the Rosewood radiused fingerboard. The color is quite dark which I like, almost like ebony. When I got the fingerboard I thought the grain was to rough and deep. But after I had sanded it down to 800 grit it turned out very good. The slots made the fretting very easy, I used medium seized frets also from Stewart-MacDonald. But be careful to not sand down the fingerboard to much because the slots are not so deep.

Love Stewmac!!!

Excellent Service

I was a little apprehensive about ordering a fretboard without being able to examine it first, so I asked specifically in my order for what I wanted, a dark, consistently grained piece. Shipping was very fast, and the board they sent was exactly what I wanted, beautiful, straight, consistent dark grain. I will definitely purchase again for future builds.

Ebony was amazing!

This stuff polishes up amazing. Its a bit brittle though so be careful when cutting. work slow and you will have an amazing fretboard

A Nice Piece of Wood

By Matt Travers from MA
(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, June 07, 2012

I used the rosewood version for my first guitar build. Without any previous experience with building guitars or with exotic woods like this, I can still say I think this was a quality board. 4 stars since I'm sure you could hunt down an even better piece, but it was more than good enough for me. No cracks or splits and it polished up nicely - a mirror shine if you look at it at a shallow angle! Very satisfied.

Good but Pricey

Very accurate fret slots and uniform arch make this board easy to complete. Ebony was streaked but easy to stain black.

Pre-Slotted Finger Board

By Gene Milne from Minneapolis
(Customer's Reviews) Tuesday, April 17, 2012

I used the pre-slotted Fret board in my first ever build. Not only was it an excellent product, it took all the stress out of the project for me. I no longer had to worry that I made a simple math or measuring error turning my labor of love into a pretty piece of wall art.

slotted fingerboard for Dobro Guitars

By P.M. Guitars and Ukuleles from Australia
(Customer's Reviews) Monday, February 13, 2012

These slotted fingerboards are great, high quality, accurate and a real time saver. I have used the Rose wood and Maple on several guitars. The Maple looks great on the Fuel Can guitar I just finished.

PRS Rosewood

By Mister from Brevard County
(Customer's Reviews) Monday, December 05, 2011

Very happy with quality and consistency. Color was light with a lot of pink/grey but close gran and no open pores.
