Richlite is a great replacement for ebony on fingerboards for stringed instruments.
Dimensions: 9" x 3.8" x 0.5" (228 x 96.5 x 12.5mm)

The items are sold and shipped with a factory finish. This finish has a slight texture that is created in the manufacturing process. It can be buffed out easily and finishes can be applied to it to give it a deeper shine.

Low maintenance, minimal shrinkage, and a density that is right in the middle of the range for ebony, there are only advantages to using Black Diamond Richlite on your guitar.

  • Acoustically superior and consistent density
  • Moisture acclimated and inherently stable
  • Durable while maintaining an ebony look and feel
  • Hand made in the U.S.A. and FSC® Certified
  • Impact resistance and span superior to wood products
  • Machines with standard tooling

Two-part water-resistant epoxies formulated for thermoset resins or phenolics are recommended for gluing (most other adhesives will not be appropriate for use with Richlite). We suggest System Three T-88 for structural bonding. Loctite E-30CL or Devcon DEV-20845 5-minute epoxy is also acceptable.
Make sure the joint gluing surfaces are roughed-up, 100 grit or less, for better glue adhesion. Do not over-tighten clamps to keep enough glue in the seam.
