I am looking for some ebony to make a fingerboard, and I am pretty sure that I am being ripped off. Does 120 dollars per board foot sound really high or is it just me. I am looking for gaboon, and so far that is the only stuff big enough to use. I could only get 2 necks out of it since it is an inch thick, but very very rough. I have found a much better price, but the pieces are too small. I have also found some macassar for only 16$ a board foot that is already planed to 1/4. Is the color the only difference between these woods, or should I hold out until I can find some gaboon?
