Fingerboard material on new Explorers


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.I am currently looking to buy a new Gibson Explorer 76 RI and while there is no stock in my country on a quick search i found in some online retailers that they came with granadillo fingerboards instead of rosewood on the ebony color and ebony on the classic white.Official Gibson site dont mention of granadillo fingerboard on the Explorer so anyone has any info on this?Thanks.

Anyone try to "ebonize" one of these yet by staining it darker and oiling it?


When I bought my flying V, a 2008 model which was more than 2 years in the store, its fretboard (north american rosewood) came very dry and light coloured. I just used Dunlop 65 Lemon Oil and the wood became more vivid.


Take it to your guitar tech!
