Approximate dimensions: 2-1/2" x 18-3/4" x 15/64" (63.50mm x 476.25mm x 5.95mm)

Radius: 16" (406.40mm)

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.

No Regrets

This is the perfect thing for finishing a project in a rush or for the "lazy" novice. Comes with a nice smooth surface than is easy to finish off, grain was very nice in mine.

Turned out sweet!

I used the ebony FB on my first build along with some abalone inlays. Fret slotting was spot on with my existing pre cut FB. Little tip, shape the board to the neck before you inlay, these come quite a bit wide. I hit some small knots with my hand plane and the knots kind of fell apart (really hard stuff) I had already did my inlays and had to offset a bit to sand out the bad knot spots. So now my inlay center line is off. Wish I would have fit it first. Luckily I shaped both sides together and had a bit to spare, sucks the knots were right on my line. Fretted really nice sounds good on the guitar.

Nice product.

The ebony is very nice. Radius was spot on and pre-sawn fret slots saves me a lot of time. Good value.

Great fingerboard. I'm a finish cabinet maker, novice luthier. A friend gave me a worn out 1935 acoustic ready for the dumpster. I didn't have the heart so I bought several items from Stewmac to bring it back to life. Fingerboard is high quality and slotted made it so easy.

Exceptional Service and Delivery

I had to replace the fingerbaord on my Stew-Mac HD28 guitar kit through absolutely no fault but my own. I went on line and like "ABC" the process was simple and I received my shipment 4 days later, 2 of those days were Sat/Sun. My HD28 kit is absolutely beautiful with a deep rich tone to it.

Good Quality Material

I found the Rosewood fingerboard to be of excellent quality. Only complaint was a slight variation in edge height.
