“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."
Solid wood rosettes impart a warm, organic appearance. Making your own rosette rings can be time-consuming but our rings are precision cut and ready for inlay (still, we think it is wise to wait until you have your rosette before routing the channel). These are probably the easiest to install of all the rosettes we offer.
The line descriptions of each item show the type of instrument for which the rosette was designed but they can be used for other instruments and sizes beyond these.
NOTE: Our narrower dreadnought rosettes are meant to be part of a three ring rosette. You can use PFL135 as the inner and outer BWB rings. If you order a rosette installation service from us and choose not to have the inner and outer rings, we will still rout our standard dreadnought soundhole (4.0" diameter). On the rosettes with the larger I.D. (inner diameter) this will leave a large amount of space between the soundhole and the rosette.
All our solid wood rosettes are .080" thick.

Always wait for the rosette to arrive before routing your slots. Rosette sizes may vary from shipment to shipment and as a result dimensions listed may not be completely accurate.
