Rosewood PRS fboards

By jmonti from SE WI
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, November 16, 2011

Just received two f-brds the other day.
Beautiful grain, color, and quality. Really tight, straight grain.
Can't wait to start glueing my necks up...
just outstanding.

Quality of wood changes from board to board.

These boards are good. They speed things up but the quality can vary from board to board.

Spot on!

I received the ebony radiused and slotted which aligned perfect against a pre-printed paper mockup of my neck with the same scale. I also ordered the stewmac fretwire which worked perfectly in the grooves. Ebony was a first for me and cutting it produced chips and chardes vs. splinters.

Hard stuff. Best to use very sharp blades for a super clean cut/edge. I plan on ordering more to finish off my other builds. Thanks!

Perfect !!

I used this fret board on a cigar box guitar I built and it was just perfect !! Gave it some real class and You better believe these cigar box guitars are real instruments and a lot of fun to play !!

Nice Fretboard

By Alex Page from Red Wing, MN
(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, May 12, 2011

The ebony flat fretboard came with very accurately placed slots and was perfectly flat. Wonderful piece. Only complaint is that the slots are too deep for the StewMac fretwire and need to be filled or the fretboard itself needs to be planed down. Otherwise, spectacular. Exactly what was needed.

1956 Gretsch fretboard replacement

By D. Morris from Cowley, Wy
(Customer's Reviews) Sunday, February 06, 2011

The PRS slotted fingerboard from Stew-Mac was perfect for a 1956 Gretsch. This provided exact fret spacing as the original fretboard on this guitar.

Excellent (if you know what your doing)

I bought a piece of the maple, and it turned out great (with some light sanding). But I'm a beginner, and I thought this would already be the right size, but I was wrong. So I would only get this fingerboard if you know what you doing! Other than that, great for the price!

I'm used to use StewMac fingerboards (in particular the rosewood ones) and I've alway been very satisfied by their quality. Highly recommended

Maple works great for experienced luthiers

By Richard from Northridge, CA
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, August 18, 2010

The maple fingerboard have the appearance of plywood until you sand it down with 600 grit sandpaper and rub in some stain (make sure to keep the slots clear). These work perfectly for me with my weird flat fingerboard guitars. I've already ordered over a dozen and find that the wood quality and precision cuts are consistent throughout.

Mediocre Maple

By Dan McCulloch from California
(Customer's Reviews) Friday, July 16, 2010

The maple boards tend to vary a lot and are "economy" grade at best.
