    Looks like garden variety East Indian to me.

    That's definitely East Indian rosewood (EIR). Probably the most common wood used for fingerboards.

    Its not red enough to be cocobolo. It's most likely Indian rosewood. What is important is that it is a good looking fretboard.
  6. It is pretty, hopefully it will arrive sometime next week.
