This is a beautifully made semi-finished banjo fingerboard. It is ideal for both restoration & new build work - we use this product a lot in our own workshops. The "nuts & bolts" - the scale length is a standard 26 3/16" approx scale. It's rectangular (approx 2" x 19 ½") and comes with the fret slots already cut. This makes it a fairly fragile item which must be handled with care until securely installed on a neck. The fingerboard is quite thick (about 3/16") and it's perfectly possible to install a shallow frailer's scoop if required. We've also had considerable success with staining this timber when using it for vintage restoration work - it can be "aged" quite nicely! Whilst this fingerboard is intended for 22-fret plectrum or 5-string banjos, we have sometimes found that it can be shortened (from the nut end, of course!) to fit on shorter-scale instruments. A good deal of careful measuring is required but it's far from impossible. When time allows, we'll post an article on this subject on the "Help Topics" page.
