    Default The Future of Ebony



    I think some of the non black ebony would look great on guitars!!! This just opens up more possibilities for unique looking guitars...

    I think the natural flametop Wolfgang someone posted recently would look KILLER with one of those lighter colored ebony boards... You still get the snap and pop of a ebony board, and it would look cool with the finish...

    I'm glad there's people like Bob Taylor that cares about the longterm and are in a position to do something about it...

    I have to say I'm a maple guy, but I played on an ebony fretboard on my Michael Kelly and I gotta say its a really nice wood to play on, I can see why Ed uses it nowadays.

    You know... Pau Ferro is a wood that I wish we would see more often. I really, REALLY liked it when the Mexican Fenders came with Pau Ferro for a while (even though the spec sheets still said Rosewood). It's a nice feeling, close-pored wood with a slightly waxy feel. It's smooth like maple but looks like rosewood, and has a tone in between.
