“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!"

Pre-slotted/Pre-radiused Fingerboards

On Sale this month. Every fingerboard is discounted $4.50!

LMI stocks a good selection of pre-slotted and pre-radiused boards ready to ship. These fingerboards are not tapered, allowing you more leeway in your design. The boards are CNC slotted with a nut slot offset to correct for fret saw blade kerf for compensation purposes so that the bridge edge of the slot is at true zero. This method of slotting works well for most builders. To bring the breakaway point of the nut slot closer to the bridge, it is easy to file away the amount of material desired. This method will not allow a zero fret.

The slots on our pre-serviced boards follow the radius. The 1/8" Fender nut slot is flat to accommodate the nut. 7/8" of wood is left behind the nut on the SFB5, SFB14 and SFB15.
