Testimonials

"....My friend and I have been building guitars in my high school woodworking class over the course of this school year. This will be the last order we place for this project, and I wanted to say that we have found your website, products, and customer service to be extremely useful. When my friend encountered some issues with bending the sides he purchased, he emailed your company to ask for advice, and, very quickly, received very helpful advice."

Rock Maple Fingerboard

FINGERBOARDRockMapleWFBMA1500Rock Maple comes from the eastern coast of North America, and unlike the more regularly figured Bigleaf maple, Rock Maple offers the requisite hardness and stability of a good fingerboard wood. These boards are quartersawn unless otherwise labeled, and even colored.

“Tempered”, “Roasted”, “baked” or 'cooked' woods are exposed to temperatures of 350° to 425° Fahrenheit (about 180°-220° Celsius). They are "cooked" in a vacuum chamber so that there is no flame or burning. The process is called 'torrefaction'. There are number of positive results with tempered wood including a darker color, greater stability, feel, and tone. We carry light tempered and dark tempered Rock Maple fingerboards.
