The .023"-wide fret slots are ready for our fretwire. Each fingerboard is supplied unprofiled (rectangular); you can simply cut it shorter to fit an A-style mandolin.

Available with traditional flat playing surface, or with modern compound radius surface for lower string action.

Dimensions: 1-15/16" x 12" x 13/64" (49.21mm x 304.80mm x 5.16mm)

Compound radius fingerboard: The playing surface radius gradually changes from 7-1/4" at the nut, to 10" at the 12th fret, to 12" at the 29th fret, to allow lower string action and easier playability. 13" bridge saddle radius is recommended.

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.

compound radius fingerboard

Very nice fingerboard,accurate compound radius centered well on the board. I have made a few myself and this is a real time saver, well worth it in labor savings.

Compound Radius Fretboard

Beautiful wood. Consistent radius. Have ordered more than one. I did have one that had a slanted cut on the nut end of the fertboard. Informed Stew-Mac and they sent a new one immediately. Wonderful customer service. Wonderful product.
