A piece of quarter-sawn maple and enough dark, nicely grained pau ferro for two fingerboards plus some leftovers. I was originally thinking ebony, but it's pricey and the pau ferro was intriguing anyways. Sooo, I'm also thinking I'll scrap the lines idea, since it'd be a shame to distract from that beautiful pau ferro. I'll go with side dots plus other side lines to mark the would-be line positions. I know about putting in the dots, but is there a good way to make lines on the side of the fretboard without having them show up on the edge of the face of the fretboard? So I guess I should start by outlining the shape of the neck onto the maple plank, then I'll go to somone with the tools to cut that out.
