Slotted Fingerboard for Fender Guitar, Compound Radius

About This Item

25.5" scale • 10" to 14.5" radius • 24 slots + nut slot
A compound radius allows cleaner string bending and lower string action without fret buzz.

We've done the critical work for you!
Our kiln-dried fingerboards have flat undersides, are unfretted (no inlays), and ready for trimming to fit a variety of neck widths.

Approximate dimensions: 2-3/8" x 20-3/8" x 15/64" (60.32mm x 517.53mm x 5.95mm)
Fret slots: 24 slots, 0.023" wide (0.58mm). Ready to accept our fretwire.
Nut slot: 1/8" wide (3.18mm)

Compound radius: The playing surface radius gradually changes from 10" at the nut, to 13" at the 12th fret, to 14-1/2" at the 22nd fret. We recommend setting your bridge saddles to an overall radius of 16". Learn more about compound radius with this Free Information Compound Radius: Explained.

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.

Ebony compound radius fingerboard - excellent

By

Verified Buyer


Excellent quality, very precise slotted and fast delivery. Compound radius fingerboards allow a very low action on any guitar and make fast playing a breeze. Highly recommended.

Excellent boards

By

Verified Buyer


These, along with the other slotted fingerboards StewMac offer, are simply brilliant. They take the worry out of getting the slot measurement correct, which is great for people like me who don't have the tools or experience to confidently slot our own fretboards. They all look and feel great, nice grain and colours. The ebony is very brittle, so it's worth taking care when working with it, but makes for a beautiful board.

Convenient product

By

Verified Buyer


Rosewood and ebony really irritate my skin, so being able to buy prefabbed boards is a real life saver to me. Couple the compound radius boards with some tall SS frets, and necks become bending machines! Every board I have recieved has been straight with great grain. The Rosewood can be a bit purple sometimes, but a little oil or stain can fix that easily.

Works fine but...

By

Verified Buyer


I got my Ebony fretboard for a V I'm working on and well.. it was perfect. It did taper slightly as you said... but backwards! Didn't affect my build but for someone else it might. Oh and I wish you carried 7-string width fretboards, these are just a cm short :C

Project T

By

Verified Buyer


Along with many other bits and pieces, I ordered a slotted ebony fret board out of curiosity for my latest project. Not knowing what to expect, I was blown away when my entire order arrived after only 3 working days. All Timber components were what I would consider absolute First Grade.

The grain of the fret board was nice and even, perfectly quartersawn right up to the last fret, and had a very nice color to it. I will definitely order through Stewmac again.

I used one of the ebony boards on an Ibanez the end product blew everyone away. The change made this guitar a real gem.

String bender paradise

I've only used the rosewood versions on several custom built guitars. All of my clients have completely loved them. No fretting out on big bends. It's one of my 'secret weapons' on my custom builds.

When I build a 25-1/2 scale guitar I always install these compound radius fingerboard. Highly recommended
