Testimonials

After three orders of fingerboards, and finding them to be exactly what I ordered, I felt I needed to tell everybody these people and the products they sell are excellent! They made a special effort to send my request for a specific color, it was perfect! The wood in these boards is awesome. Thank you very much for attention to my wishes.

Sincerely Jim

Abalam Strips, Straight & Curved

L-R: (curved/straight)
Donkey shell, green ab, green ab select, and paua ab.
See larger photo.

"Abalam" is a stunning inlay material, made by laminating extremely thin sections of shell in such a way as to render the entire surface of the sheet with beautiful, figured shell patterns — unlike natural shell slab pieces which varies over the surface area and depth of the piece. Used by many factories, laminated shell strips are amazing time savers.

  • Straight Strips are 5.25" long x .050" thick.
    Order about 13 pieces for a guitar edge.
  • Curved Strips are 4.75" x .050" with an inside diameter of 4.921" (125mm)
    Order 3 pieces per rosette (MartinTM-style, no shell under fingerboard)
All prices are per strip.



NOTE: Due to United States Fish and Wildlife Service restrictions,
we are unable to ship shell outside the U.S.A.
