I'm getting a new guitar soon, and since it's all black, I'd like to basically darken or stain the fretboard (rosewood) in a way that it will be a very thick, dark color. On my other guitar it's basically relatively bright, so does anyone know how I'd go along to do that?

A really good example of the color I want to get is this:

they have ebony dye.

not sure if it's specifically for rosewood. read up, and call them if needed.

Sweet, I'll check that out!

Edit: That's going to leave the freatboard BLACK though. All I'm looking for is just a darkening basically, a more saturated dark tone. Unless that is achievable using only small amounts of this oil dye perhaps?

i stained a maple board with some wood stain.

if you look into it, i'm sure there are cheap dyes you can use.

BTW, the Fiebing Oil Dye that StewMac sells is also available at equestrian and leather-working shops for ~$4. Since it's Oil, I suppose you can dilute it with some colorless Oil so it doesn't look too dark or maybe just get Brown (which looks dark, too) instead of Black?

I've also read some people having good results with the Kiwi brand,
