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.

Rosewood Fretboard

Got to say this is the best sample of Rosewood I have seen and the fact I didn't have to cut the slots or pre radius it when it arrived made my life so much easier. It only took two days for it to arrive too. Great price and amazing service.

Great texture and color

Someone mentioned minor difference between older and newer scale lengths. Beside that, very nice texture, my piece (pre slotted one) is almost black, it looks dark as ebony. We'll hear how it sounds when the guitar is finished!

nice board, but ...

These boards are very nice, but are actually right on 24.75" scale. Most vintage Gibson guitars are 24.625". Just be aware of the difference.

StewMac responds

Hmmm, that shouldn't be the case. The scale length for this fretboard is 24-9/16" (24.5625"), not 24-3/4" (24.75").

Pre-slotted east indian rosewood fretboard

For me it's all around the sound. I choosed the pre slotted version, because i think, Stewmac chooses the best quality for the pre slotting. I'm very pleased about the sound, tap-tone ist very ring-like, moisiture content was 8%, so it's really killn dryed. I didn't like the colour, it's to purple, much purple as my reserved Camarillo. After some lemon oil it's just black, but you can see the purple.
