Gibson sale at smash


Recommended Posts

Regarding comments on fretboard materials, I've had my Midtown Custom for about 10 months now. The Richlite fingerboard plays at least equivalent to (or dare I say it?) or better than ebony on any of my guitars.


There, I said it...


I would have no problem with purchasing a high end guitar with a Richlite board. And I have (and have had) many guitars with ebony, maple and rosewood. Richlite is very smooth, stable, doesn't get stained with dirt, oils, moisture, and does not seem to scratch or marr from playing wear. And I can't distinguish if there really is any sonic difference in it either. Any others have the same experience?
