“I recently purchased a beautiful fingerboard from you and now I am thinking of grabbing fretwire from you as well. Unfortunately I'm cheap and lazy and find myself here asking if it is possible to pay more to have your fretwire radiused before it is sent? You guys would be the coolest ever. No matter what the outcome, I will be sending more business your way from here in Maine. Hoping for good news! Thank you!"

Burn-in Lacquer Stick


Burn-in Lacquer Stick


See Safety Data Sheet

Burn-in Lacquer Sticks are a time-saver for filling in the ends of fret slots in an Ebony fingerboard. The black lacquer wax can be melted in the hole with a hot chisel or knife heated by an alcohol lamp or a conventional soldering iron. (Avoid scorching the wood.) Also available in a clear stick for use in fingerboards other than Ebony or wherever transparent fill is needed.

These sticks are extremely fragile. Our shippers take every reasonable effort to protect them, however, we can not guarantee that you will receive them in one piece. This should not be a problem since you will only be using a small part of the stick in normal usage.
