All types of woods are not good for making musical instruments. Wood is predominantly used for making a stringed instrument. A few metal parts and strings are essential for making musical instruments. A guitar is producing sounds when the vibrations of the string pass into a hollow chamber. Therefore, a good, resonant wood is required for producing rich and mellow sound. Ebony, Mahogany, Maple, and Rosewood are mainly used for making fingerboards.
The fingerboards offered by Exotic Wood Zone are free from cracks, which are guaranteed even in the lower grades. While shipping, some finger boards, especially Ebony, move a little due to different climate. However, if you purchase fingerboards from our online shop, it will be free from warpage. Aesthetic factors such as grain patterns and coloration are used for grading our fingerboards. The grading is done on the basis of species.
