Ebony is expensive for its dense black color and unbeatable hardness. The contrasting color makes it attractive for guitar fingerboards, backs and sides. Builders prefer West African based Ebonies because it’s easy to plane and stable than other woods. Ceylon Ebony, Gaboon Ebony, Mun Ebony, and Macassar Ebony Bottle Stopper Blanks are few of the particular species under Ebony.

Ebony is well-known for its crisp and clear tone. It has oily pores and tight grains. This tight grain pattern gives your fingerboard a very slick look and fast playing quality.

Traditionally, ebony was used for making black pieces in chess sets. White pieces were made by using rare boxwood or ivory. Ebony was also used for making East Midlands-style lace-making bobbins. The wood is very strong, so the wood is used for many rifle fore-end tips and handgun grips. The myriad use of ebony leads to unsustainable harvesting. Thus, many species yielding ebony are considered threatened. Most illegal cutting of indigenous ebony is in Africa.
