Unslotted Fingerboard for Bass

Each top-quality fingerboard is kiln-dried, unradiused, unfretted (no inlays), and ready for final trimming in your shop to fit a variety of neck widths. They're perfect for slotting custom fret scales. Save time and get the perfect board for your neck build.

Ebony
Our Ebony (Diospyros crassiflora) comes from West Africa and tends to be more uniformly black than we have seen from other sources, however, most African ebony is not perfectly jet black, most boards have some visible grain and occasional streaks of greys and tans. We think these visual variations offer character and enhance the aesthetics of most guitars, but if you desire a perfectly dark, jet black appearance consider using our Black Fingerboard Stain to darken the board and create the desired visual effect.

Approximate dimensions:
#1023 2-1/2" x 27" x 1/4" (63.50mm x 685.80mm x 6.35mm)
#1021 3" x 27" x 1/4" (76.20mm x 685.80mm x 6.35mm)

Granadillo
Over the last decade Granadillo (Platymiscium yucatanum) has been rising in popularity among European and North American builders. It is an extremely inexpensive, dense, non-porous wood that resists wear, has a strong resonant tap-tone and glues well. Most boards range between sandy and "brick" brown and oxidizes over time to a warm dark brown patina.

Approximate dimensions:
3" x 28" x 5/16" (76.20mm x 711mm x 7.93mm)

Chechen
Coming from Mexico and Central America, Chechen (Metopium brownei) is sometimes referred to as Caribbean Rosewood. While not a true rosewood, it shares some of the excellent characteristics of high projection and volume. Similar to Pau Ferro, it's a hard, dense, and tight-grained wood that makes an excellent fretboard. Colors range from amber to chocolate brown with a pleasant figure.

Approximate dimensions:
3" x 28" x 5/16" (76.20mm x 711mm x 7.93mm)

Machiche
Another emerging Central American tonewood, Machiche (Lonchocarpus castilloi) compares favorably to Honduran Rosewood. Its excellent tap tone, high density, and easy workability have made it a new favorite for steel string and classical builders. Visually the grainlines are very similar to Honduran Rosewood, with a combination of reds, and light and dark browns. It also glues and finishes with ease.

Approximate dimensions:
3" x 28" x 5/16" (76.20mm x 711mm x 7.93mm)

Important:
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.
