The Indian ebony guitar fingerboards are the best quality and color fingerboards I have seen a quite a while. The fingerboard can be slotted with your preference of either compensated fret spacing, or the standard rule of 18 fret spacing. Compensated fret spacing give you better intonation up and down the fret board and is the spacing used for on all my guitars and is what was used in the classical guitar making book and DVD box set. These fine quality fingerboards available in 650mm scale length only.
There are few colors that go with both spruce and cedar tops as far as bindings go. And if you can find something that works it might not bend easily. I have selected jotoba for the bindings and backstrips for all my wood kits because the color goes with either spruce or cedar and it bends well.
The classical guitar fret placement template is used to create the slots in the fingerboard of the guitar for the frets. The template is used with a table saw sled demonstrated in the guitar making DVD. Created with CNC accuracy the template has both standard and compensated (from the book and DVD) fret positions and is made of .220″ clear acrylic. Available in 650mm scale length.
