24.562" scale • 12" radius • 24 slots
Note: Gibson® guitar scale is commonly referred to as 24-3/4" but is actually 24.562".

This is the most common of three different scales described as 24-3/4" by Gibson over the years. Many Gibson's have alternate scale lengths—please measure your guitar before ordering!

Tip: For 20-fret necks, simply cut off the four highest slots.

Gibson® 24-3/4" scale changes over the years
The Gibson 24-3/4" scale is one of the most common, and most confusing of all scale lengths-this is because it rarely ever measures out to be 24-3/4 inches! This scale has gradually changed over the past fifty or so years due to changes in production equipment.

Learn more about scale length and how scale length affects tone.

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 18-1/2" x 15/64" (60.32mm x 469.90mm x 5.95mm)
Scale: 24.562" (623.87mm)
Radius: 12" (304.80mm)
Fret slots: 24 slots, 0.023" wide (0.58mm). Ready to accept our fretwire.

A note about ebony:
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.

Slotted rosewood fingerboard

I've purchased several of these from Stew Mac in the past and have always been very happy with them. This one not so much. The grain didn't run straight and there were a couple of fairly large divots taken out during the planing process. I considered returning it, but wanted to get on with my build. It turned out OK, but not particularly impressive.

Very nice Ebony board

By Midnight Luthiery from USA

Board was nearly all black, straight grained, flat on the underside, scale and fret placement are spot on. The radius seemed dodgy, more like 14ö. Customer Support tells me this is not normal and offered to replace it. As luck would have it, I wanted to do a compound radius so this worked out to my advantage. My only request for improvement - The slots are cut straight across to a depth of 1/8ö in the center which is slighter more than 1/2 the 15/64ö thickness. I would prefer radiused slots to maintain more rigidity but this is not a deal breaker.

Product and Customer service Outstanding

I am a techie with a very strong Auto background. Been playin since 11. The first board I got was fine but the project turned out so well, I called them for a replacement ebony. They were so nice I was stunned. Sent the other one in, and the new board they sent me was perfect.Thanks for your professionalism Stew Mac.
