Testimonials

“You guys are the best. I just received my order and literally every time i describe my specifications on how the fretboards should look you guys deliver 10/10. the two long scale indian rosewood fingerboards looks simply spectacular and the ziricote is glorious. I usually dont take the time to write these but this time I had to. Thanks for years of wonderful service guys. And if you can find the guys who helped pick my recent boards, make sure to personally tell them how happy I am."

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.
