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 board

(Customer's Reviews)

Very nice fret board, no flaws and very clean fret slots.


Perfect for converting an old TB-3 into a 5-string banjo

(Customer's Reviews)

This fingerboard made my work so easy. Great looking rosewood - and with a little dye I darken it to looks like Brazilian rosewood. Easy to hammer in the frets in this fingerboard. Great product - as everything from Stewart McDonald.


A useful item to speed up many jobs

(Customer's Reviews)

Whilst these might appear to be expensive, I've found over the years that the time that they save me on doing lots of jobs on "more or less standard" banjos has more than justified the expense. My only regret is that the tenor version of this product was discontinued some years ago - perhaps I didn't buy enough of them?
