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.

A Rosewood by any other name

I recently ordered this product from StewMac for a Les Paul/Gretsch 6128 project. The items arrived quickly and the fingerboard had a beautiful grain pattern which will enhance my project. I strongly recommend this product and company.

High quality and a great value

I am very impressed with this pre- slotted fingerboard (ebony). It matched up to my 1982 Gibson XR-1 LP's deteriorating fretboard perfectly. This is a great buy and is of very high quality.

Not bad

I will always use these for my builds, simple as that. There are other slotted boards you can get around(like allparts) that are only 22 or 21 frets, but I love ow this is made longer, 24 with a good inch and a half overhang.

I purchased ebony and rosewood, both well made, the ebony needs no stain, very little grain, and what little there is, I like the look of.

My ONLY disappointment is that my Rosewood really looked more like Bloodwood, it was pinkish-red streaked, so I couldn't use it, as the colour would clash with the body, but I think I can make use of it in the future. I am sure this is a one-shot thing, and won't hold it against StewMac.

great boards

i don't know why anyone would go to the trouble to make there own fret board when for 20 bucks all the work is done for you. could not do as good a job myself.

dont think i will ever slot or radius another board...

My first time using a pre-cut and radius-ed board... saves a ton of time! just had to use 3 12" radius sanding blocks as cauls for the top and V cauls for the bottom...

Excellent figerboards

I bought ebony and rosewood fingerboards ant they are very well slotted and radiused, and the wood looks great!
But it would be nice if you also sold wider fingerboards for 7 and 8 string guitars!

Slotted ebony fingerboard for Gibson guitar

Used it to repair an SG.
Wood itself was great but the slots were way too deep. I liked to use the whole thickness of the fingerboard , now I had to use a plainer to get the slot as deep as the fret tang would go.
At StewMac they suggested I filled the spaces with super glue ,I think that's not the way it should be.
Next time I will buy the unslotted version
