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.

Excellent ebony

A great piece of wood. There are some brown streaks that give a nice character to ebony.

No complaints here

As with the Bass neck blank, I was worried about purchasing this, I need not have worried. The board is dead flat, nice and dark with a small amount of lighter areas that will disappear with a little stain. The dimensions are also spot on. Will happily buy this item again!

Ebony and Ivory

Um'd and ah'd about purchasing one of these as I usually use Wenge, however it was easy to cut the fret slots, wide enough for me to make a full width J-bass 5 string type neck too. The blank was well sanded and squared up to line up nicely on my fret saw template. Weight of this blank was quite a bit heavier than I thought it would be.

Coloration wasn't too bad, however I will have to stain it to make the colour even all over, but can't buy the stain from you due to shipping restrictions. I am testing some local products that I believe will work equally well.

Due to the lack of a grading system, I was worried about ordering this blank.

The blank I received was very black and accurately thickness sanded. I just had to square the ends.

Thanks guys.
