    It's a good thing too, even a MIA fender really doesn't need a high end, hard to source fretboard.

    I recall movement in that direction even before the CITES restrictions were implemented. Good looking rosewood and ebony are getting tougher to find and much more expensive when available.

    It's kind of criminal to waste these woods on solidbody electrics regardless of price, where (being honest) it doesn't make a huge tonal difference. Acoustic stringed instruments are another matter.

    What we really need are "lab-grown tonewoods", where you brew up a batch of perfect Brazilian rosewood or black ebony fretboards at will.

    I would say I'm surprised the furniture industry hasn't been funding research in that direction, but having just read Factory Man, I'm completely not surprised.
