    I recently custom ordered a G&L L-2000,and when it arrived I immediately noticed that the ebony fretboard has some rather large,brown areas of color on it.
    I don't know if this is macassar,or gaboon ebony,but I was expecting it to be all black.I hate the way it looks.
    Could I have it stained black so that the brown areas aren't seen anymore?Thanks in advanced for any info you can provide.
