Slotted Fingerboard for Fender Guitar

About This Item

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)

Important:
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.

pre-slotted fretboards

I started out using these. Wonderful product. I progressed to cutting my own, since I can use more exotic woods than offered here. But I am seriously considering using these again whenever I'm using rosewood, ebony or maple. Saves a lot of time and makes a ton of sense.

I purchase 3 of the maple, because I was having planer issues. They looked great and the scale was accurate, but one of them had a nice chunk missing not to far from the nut slot. The only thing that saved me from returning it was that the board is oversized and that chunk was cut off anyway. Other than that no complaints.

Very precise slots. Only complaint is that there was considerable chatter of the cutter when the radius was cut. Required a lot of sanding to get smooth.

I use these for one off guitars. I've used a few to create a 24 inch scale putting a zero fret in the first fret slot and sawing off the remainder. These always seem to seat the fret very well and are very level. I've never had any buzz anywhere on the neck. I'll keep using them and would highly recommend them.

I ordered the Rosewood fingerboard for my first project. It is a beautiful piece of wood, and the slots are perfect. There is a bit of planer chip-out behind the second fret, and it may or may not sand out; if I were building a 2,000-3,000 dollar guitar, it would be an issue, but I'm not, and it won't affect the sound or playability so I don't mind. Not perfect, but probably an outlier

I installed 2 fretboards so far, both were excellent quality, but I noticed that one chipped more when routing it. But I had a little worn router bit.

I just finished a new build and for the first time used a pre-slotter, radiused fingerboard. I purchased the rosewood with a 12" radius. It was excellent quality wood and very attractive. There were no blimishes at all, front or back and having it slotted saved me a lot of time and for just over $20 it was more than worth it.
