So I brought my friend's Squier VM modified fretless that needed fretboard repair to my luthier who'd never seen ebonol fretboards before. He carefully applied epoxy at one small damaged spot and sanded it down to see how the material reacts. He then said it all was surely repairable but the material was even softer than wood - he didn't say which wood and I didn't ask, but I suppose he must have included rosewood in what he meant, because otherwise it wouldn't make sense to choose such a generic word. What is your experience with ebonol? Did you too find it softer than some or most popular types of wood?
