Mandolin Fingerboard

About This Item

Flat or compound radius playing surface! Our kiln-dried ebony and rosewood fingerboards are accurately slotted for 29 frets and 13-7/8" scale length.

The .023"-wide fret slots are ready for our fretwire. Each fingerboard is supplied unprofiled (rectangular); you can simply cut it shorter to fit an A-style mandolin.

Available with traditional flat playing surface, or with modern compound radius surface for lower string action.

Dimensions: 1-15/16" x 12" x 13/64" (49.21mm x 304.80mm x 5.16mm)

Compound radius fingerboard: The playing surface radius gradually changes from 7-1/4" at the nut, to 10" at the 12th fret, to 12" at the 29th fret, to allow lower string action and easier playability. 13" bridge saddle radius is recommended.

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.

mandolin fingerboards

(Customer's Reviews)

I use these fingerboards building F-5 mandolins


ebony fingerboard compound radius

(Customer's Reviews)

I've used 12 inch radius on my last two mando fretboards and am ready to try a compound radius such as Collings puts on their instruments. When I received this fingerboard I was dismayed to find it only 1/8" thick at the edges. Even when allowing for trimming back to the tapered edges only brings it up to 5/32". Not thick enough to look appropriate with side dots. Since I already have their great aluminum 12 inch radius sanding beam, a paid to ship this fingerboard back and will do my own compound radius
