    Talking Ebonized Horus Fretboard

    Seeing that there was a few posts regarding the staining of a Horus fretboard I figured I might as well post some pictures of the Horus I just finished staining for a forum member here. Not many shots but thankfully this new digital camera takes much better shots than my old one (ok, I just suck at taking photos and need a camera that will do as much work as possible). Anyways here's the pics

    NOTE: I've left the 12th fret UNSTAINED just for your comparison. It has now been stained.


    The guitar while it sits on one of my ghetto make shift work benches.



    A closeup of the unstained 12th fret for a visual comparison. You can also see the rounded fret ends and the rounded fretboard edge on this shot pretty well.



    Another close up shot of the 12th fret, but this time the colours are correct.

    Overall, I'm pretty sure you'll all agree with me that the guitar looks a LOT better with a black fretboard. My next stain project is going to be the fretboard on a Horus Iris Violet with a deeper than normal violet finish and black hardware (yep, BLACK hardware).

    Enjoy! The fretboard staining is now an option on my Premium stuff.

    That does look good. It is too bad that my new one will already have a real Ebony fretboard;-)
    Now that looks like a rounded fretboard edge too. Soon, my Blacknight will be as cool as this one.

    That's super!! The black fretboard on the Black Night looks awesome! Too bad it's got gold hardware. It would have looked cooler with black hardware.
    I got 3 more frets than you

    Just saw it in the other thread. You did a pretty good job with it actually, especially for the first time.

    As for the 12th fret on the one I did, I left it unstained on purpose just to show the difference on the colour. The fret has now been stained and the whole fretboard has that uniform black look.
