The 34" scale is Fender's standard bass scale and is also one of the most common bass scales in use today. Suitable for traditional Fender installations with the fingerboard extending beyond the nut, or you can trim that portion off for other designs.
Our kiln-dried fingerboards have flat undersides, are unfretted (no inlays), and ready for trimming to fit a variety of neck widths.
Approximate dimensions: 2-1/2" x 26" x 1/4" (63.50mm x 660.40mm x 6.35mm) Scale: 34" (863.60mm) Radius: 16" (406.40mm) Fret slots: 24 slots, 0.023" wide (0.58mm). Ready to accept our fretwire. Nut slot: 1/8" wide (3.18mm)
By cutting the fingerboard shorter at the 2nd fret (at the nut end), it can be used on a 30-5/32" scale bajo sexto or baritone guitar.

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.
