  2. Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

    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.
