Slotted Fingerboard for Fender Bass

About This Item

34" scale • 16" radius • 24 slots + nut slot
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.

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.

I've bought many items over the years from Stewmac and by and large have been very pleased with most of them...unfortunate then that I feel compelled to write a review regarding the slotted bass fingerboard recently received. I usually cut my own slots on fingerboards but bought this ready cut board to save time on an experimental project I am working on. Straight out of the box the rosewood was a disappointing colour...uneven across the board, not great but 'one of those things'. However, that wasn't the only problem...the radius was very, VERY uneven, indeed, sighting a line along the edge of the board revealed numerous bumps and humps along the length, particularly on the 'bass' side. The fret slots as a result look to be of uneven depth too. As a professional luthier this isn't a great problem for me, but if this was being ordered by someone trying to make their first dream bass project...they might not have the tools and/or knowledge on how to deal with this...if you fretted this without rectifying these problems you could run into a whole heap of trouble when you come to set the bass up, I don't believe a playable bass could be made!...beware!!! C'mon guys...this one really shouldn't have got out...

Nice quality wood, no problem with the slotting, it also has plenty of wood in back of the nut slot. A negative is that the board is not graduated in thickness, a Fender style board has uniform thickness at the edges, not in the center as the Stew-Mac board has, it takes some work in addition to cutting to shape.


Good Quality

I bought this for my senior project for school. I built a custom bass guitar designed based off of the 1961 Fender Bass VI. I thought the design was pretty cool. So i set forth on taking the design and putting it into my own view, using this fingerboard for the neck.
