I was jamming out on my UV, and did a slide on one of the bass strings.

I got a splinter in my fingertip.

I don't have tweezers.

I had to remove it with the blade of my Leatherman. :mad:

Aren't the white UVs Ebony?

Regardless, that sucks. Be glad it wasn't a wenge or bubinga fretboard... shit is nasty.

I'm really not sure. :scratch: I just did a fret polish, so maybe a piece of tape pulled a sliver up or something? Either way, the fretboard is in pretty good shape and I can't see a missing piece or anything - for all I know, maybe it was something else black and sharp and it wasn't the rosewood at all, but whatever it was, it hurt! :lol:
