A set of quartersawn Madagascar set with a bit of sapwood. Plain grain but a beautiful, deep dark reddish brown color. Slight black striping figure on the sides.
A set of quartersawn Amazon RW, very nice reddish brown color.
A group of two African Blackwood fingerboards (lower right) quartersawn and of exceptional grain, and six “bois de rose” Madagascar rosewood fingerboards – excellent taptone and moderate density, a perfect match to a denser neck such as mahogany or sapele. Bois de rose soon oxidizes to near black becoming almost indistinguishable from ebony.
