Peghead Overlay Veneer

About This Item

The peghead overlay is the face of your stringed instrument: the finishing touch of quality. Rosewood and ebony are the well-established favorites for this purpose.

Thickness-sanded to 3/32" (2.38mm), these veneers are large enough for guitar, banjo or mandolin.

0983 Ebony 4" x 8" x 3/32" (106mm x 203mm x 2.38mm)
0991 Ebony 3-1/2" x 7" x 3/32" (89mm x 178mm x 2.38mm)
0981 Rosewood 3-1/2" x 7" x 3/32" (89mm x 178mm x 2.38mm)

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.

Really nice material!

By

Verified Buyer


This material is very nice! Evenly sanded to the thickness and ready to be shaped and glued on. I make my necks with the head stock grafted onto the neck shaft using the old Martin compound bridal joint and I want the best overlay possible to give it even more strength. This is a bit time consuming and I like having good material so I can get the job done quicker while still keeping the quality. Good product, as with ALL of Stew-Mac's products. Thanks!

Nice overlay

I'm building a turn-of-the-century take on a banjo and this ebony overlay is perfect for that purpose. Even in color, straight tight grain, it's going to make a great backdrop for the over the top inlay that's going to go in it. Just beautiful. It's really nice having a company you can depend on to supply quality goods at reasonable costs.

Fine for what I used it for

My rosewood has inconsistent colour and is yellowish on 1/3. I bought it to use for timber side dot material, so I was able to get enough good colour rosewood for the dots.

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 :)
