  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    The majority of interest in a guitar that I have for sale has come from outside of the E.U., but due to the presence of a rosewood fingerboard it has become clear that it is going to be difficult to export. Has anyone here in the UK had much experience\success when exporting guitars with...

  3. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So yeah, I wasn't thinking last night, put a bunch of guitars up, all with rosewood boards, and one sold pretty uickly (I think to a former member on here eelblack). ANd when i woke up this morning I remembered all the CITES stuff with regard to rosewood. Guitar in question is a 1991 540s7, so...

    The new CITES regulations affect every guitar builder that uses rosewood for fingerboards and other parts, including Fender, Gibson, Martin, Taylor, and many more. It will likely take several months before the paperwork requirements are actually sorted out. From Warmoth's site (Warmoth Custom...

    Who here has done it? How did you do it? Thinking of doing it on my Charvel. I love the look of beautifully cared for rosewood, but this one hasn't been hydrated in forever and was probably a lighter cut originally and I think it would look better a bit darker.
  6. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Well, "darkened", not "ebonized", but then I wasn't going for straight black, I just wanted to make the board a few shades darker (it turned out more than just a few shades but oh well, looks good!) I love a good cut of rosewood, don't get me wrong, but when it's pale it looks really cheap...

    Does anyone know what this white-ish color streak in my fretboard is, and how to get rid of it? Will a simple lemon oil fret condition/rub do the trick or do I need something like a toothbrush?

    Well I broke one of my rules with this one: I got a white guitar :lol: I normally dont like the color white on anything, but I had to make an exception for this one. I got this from my friend Jonathan, and it is only 3 months old. I was considering getting a PDN neptune blue JP6, but I...

    Best Fretboard type? Ebony, Maple, Rosewood ? I was just wondering if each wood has its own individual tone and sound ?

    :scratch: 1 Guitar Neck Replacement Ibanez Prestige Brazilian Rosewood Maple Fretboard | eBay I doubt this was made by ibanez but I could be seriously wrong but nonetheless it's sexy.

    I, on top of swirling this guitar, am wanting to try and make the fret board look darker. My question is Would the Minwax Ebony Wood stain work for it? Wood Stain and Finish Colors | Wood Stain Colors this is the sample they show: or would this be the better choice? STEWMAC.COM : Black...

    I've been uh..planning another build :ugh: And I've been curious of rosewood, how is it? Is it easy to work with? Do you carve it like a normal neck? How do you finish them? Do they need to be sealed?

    This just got here today, pardon the indoor pics but the weather is crappy here today. I'll see if I can get some better pics in the next day or two if the sun comes out. This is literally fresh out of the box, I just took the fretboard covering off and snapped the pics. I want to let it...

    My KxK Sii-7ex should be shipping soon, it's in the home stretch :woot: (since I'm sure somebody will point it out the light spot on the neck is just a color shift in the ebony. Since I picked/bought the wood for this and it wasn't visible until the neck was carved I decided to just leave...

  18. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So I've been trying to sell my DC-5 for a very long time (it sounds awesome but even with the attenuator it's a bit much for my living situation) and some guy on craigslist sent me a offer for one of these: S&P Showcase Series. While it looks like a nice guitar I would flip it as soon as I get...
