Keeps the Customer happy

I am changing an Old Fretted Bass into a Fretless Bass for a Client, and I made this known to StewMac as I ordered one of their unfitted Ebony Fret boards.

They delivered a beautiful straight grained Ebony Billet that was a lovely even Black colour and almost like ''the Ebony of old'' that we older Luthiers saw on guitars during the 50s to the early 80s.

Both the client and I were very pleased with it and can highly recommend this product should anyone else be thinking of making/converting to a Fretless Bass. Good service again StewMac, thank you.

I've ordered a bit of ebony from StewMac over the years and usually was great, the most recent piece I ordered showed up with a twist - to the point where I can't use it as a fretboard, but I'll be able to use it to make other pieces for guitars. Aside from that one fluke, the ebony has been great!

Response from StewMac

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

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.
