Royal Blackwood fingerboard 1/4" thick, 1st grade, mando/uke

$6.60

Peltogyne catingae

Royal Blackwood is created using a proprietary torrefaction process that renders natural hardwood pure black, retaining the wood's natural grain and workability.

2nd-grade fingerboards are typically downgraded due to small aesthetic defects in the wood. Despite the defects, the color is still black and the boards are perfectly functional. 

  • Dried to 8% and stabilized through torrefaction
  • Glues, works, sands, and machines like natural wood
  • Density falls right between Ebony and Indian Rosewood
  • Not dyed! The color penetrates the wood evenly and does not react to glues, moisture, or solvents
  • Sustainably forested, freely exportable
  • Priced well below true ebony

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. 

Please allow 3 business days to process customized fingerboards. 

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
