As you probably know, in recent years the availability of high quality, old-school style fingerboards—the kind players have come to expect on their guitars—have been harder and harder to find.
As a result, our team set out on a mission to scour the world to find sustainable stashes of the best quality fingerboards available anywhere, and now, after much searching we're proud to stock one of the finest assortments of fingerboards you'll find anywhere.
Each of our fingerboards has been kiln dried and is stable and ready for use once it's been acclimated to your shop's environment.
Each board measures approximately:
2-3/8" x 20-5/8" x 15/64" (60.32mm x 524mm x 5.95mm)
Madagascar Rosewood, Master Grade
Madagascar Rosewood (Dalbergia baroni) is the closest commercially available substitute—in both tone and visual appearance—for Brazilian Rosewood (Dalbergia nigra). Our Master Grade offers strong variegation, black ink lines and color contrast from golds to browns to blacks that make many of these boards virtually undistinguishable from their Brazilian cousins.
Our standard grade Madagascar Rosewood (Dalbergia baroni) fingerboards are just as high quality as the Master Grade, however, these have a more uniform, brown, straight grained appearance. These offer a more standard understated visual effect and are similar to what you would find on most vintage instruments.
As all rosewoods are now part of the CITES treaty, our Indian Rosewood and Madagascar Rosewood are not available for international export.
