    I didnt know where to put this so I though set up would be the best, if not, feel free to move it.
    What I want to know is what happened to the neck on this baby? It looks REALLY good, but what kind of wood is it? what did they put on the neck?

    Roscoe uses diamondwood fingerboards. IIFC, diamondwood is a wood that has been impregnated with hardners and compressed to make it more consistantly dense and harder overall.

    Moses also offers fingerboards of this material as do other makers.

    I imagine the pattern you see is a pattern resulting from this treatment process. Whether or not it is intentional, I don't know.
