West African Ebony has been a standard fingerboard wood for factory guitars in Europe and America, and for many builders, it is preferred because it is easier to plane and is more stable than other Ebonies. It is rarely pure-black, but the streaks and mottling that are indicative of West African Ebony are now largely accepted in the marketplace.

Click on the choices below to customize your product

Enter a scale length between 8" and 40". If you want a fretless board you don't need to make a choice. For radiusing only go directly to #3. For thicknessing only go directly to #7. 

Use the fingerboard calculator in our Help Center to be sure your choices will fit on the board you chose. 

If you choose to have your fingerboard slotted, you must make a selection in the remaining fingerboard customizations as well. If you do not make choices, we will choose the following for you: Slot Depth - .095", Nut Slot Position - Standard Nut Slot Position, Nut Slot Offset - 1/8" behind the nut. 

To convert mm to inches, divide the mm by a factor of 25.4. Ex: 660mm divided by 25.4 equals  25.98" inches. 

Enter the number of fret slots desired. Use the fingerboard calculator to make sure you have chosen a long enough board for the scale and number of frets that you have chosen.

The Standard nut slot moves the kerf back half the width of the slot. Our slots are .024”, so we move it back .012”. This puts the string’s break away point (the edge of the nut) at “true zero”. The Zero Fret option places the nut slot so that it is centered at the zero point of the scale. This works for those who install a zero fret – a fret at the nut position

Product Description

Use our Fret Scale and Fingerboard Length Calculator to see if the fingerboard you're ordering is long enough.

For those who require blacker boards, you can use on or these products to darken the wood:

  • FFOA - Fingerboard Oil
  • FLWRO - O'Brien Lutherie Wax
  • FFO - Nomad F-One Oil
  • FAW Dr. Duck's Ax Wax
  • FD - Fingerboard DYE

You might also consider purchasing Rocklite Ebano wood composite or Richlite cellulose composite fingerboards.

For many years now we have not been able to get quartersawn boards as the Ebony trees are very small. Less than 1% of the boards are quartersawn and we cannot specially select quartersawn boards.

It is rarely pure-black, but the streaks and mottling that are indicative of West African Ebony are now largely accepted in the marketplace.
