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.

Nice piece of wood! Perfect thickness for a replacement pick guard for my Epiphone Ultra-339. Had to dye the wood with black leather dye to get it truly black. I dyed it, let it dry, wiped it off, SANDED it again with 2500, repeated this process like four times. Still isn't as black as ebony used to be, but really cool, none the less.

Great consistancy, even color. I dyed two with the black "Fingerboard Stain" and left the others natural. Very pleased. Necks still in the rough

Veneer to my heart

Bad puns aside, this is a well cut veneer and has consistent thickness. Useful for many small applications. The ebony does benefit from staining black if you want a consistent color, but most ebony does.

Good wood

Bought this as donor wood for shimming an ebony fretboard extension, also using it to hand carve a truss rod cover. Have kept a bag of all my sawdust for fretboard chips as well. Got some mahogany for shims as well... good wood, some gets to shine on headstocks and look all pretty, mine has more utilitarian purpose :)

Wonderful Overlays

I had only purchased 2 Ebony ones and both were uniform in color and size. Works really well, will buy more!

I bought this for a peghead veneer, but ended up using to make a back cover for the guitar pictured, the company (not this one) I bought the body from send they would send a cover, well didn't happen, but I had this rosewood on hand and used it, made the guitar even more beautiful...good for other uses as well...beautiful wood. Many of the other parts are from Stew Mac on this build, too.
