Fretboards and Bridges
Few luthiers (or players, for that matter) give much thought to
the wood that goes into the fretboard and bridge. Generally, high-end guitars
get ebony while less expensive guitars get something else.
Ebony has many characteristics that make it a top choice and it is
standard on all VanDruff guitars. However, other woods have
advantages in some areas (not just cost).
If you expect ebony on a hand made guitar, that is what you will get.
However, if you want to try something different, explore the list to the left.
Some restrictions: Fretboards and bridges are made in matching
woods only (just a quirk of mine, really). With the exception of position markers and fairly simple
patterns, I only inlay ebony fingerboards.
