W African Ebony fingerboard 5/16" thick, 1st grade, steel string/electric
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.
