Hey guys, is it possible to stain a rosewood fingerboard to black?
How much would it set me back? How long does the stain last?
Thanks!

Why don't you just spill oil on it...it'll cause a stain. lol

Or what about spray painting it?....or why you don't you paint it black....be hardcore...staining is for losers.

That will scratch away probably.

That's just Fiebing's Oil Dye ... available at shoe repair or equestrian shops.

Some people have also had good results with Kiwi Leather Dye.

****tard who says to spraypaint.... get away.
Stain works. You've gotta remove the finish, mask everything off, stain, and then refinish, though.

Well its rosewood so yes you can just 'slap it in there'

But clean your fretboard first and wipe down with naptha if possible.

It would be best to take the frets out first though and doing it properly

A couple of different places make sprayable stain . get the black stain spray and thenjust spray it. but you have to mask off the inlays. it lasts a long time but you have to put a couple of coats of it and lacquer.
