hey ug,
as the title suggests, is there any way to swap out the fingerboard on a guitar without having to replace the neck, just remove the fingerboard and put on another one

i dont mind if its not possible
im only asking cos my guitar has a rosewood fingerboard and i prefer an ebony one

its not the easiest thing to do no. There is a tutorial on project guitar. I did it on a neck thru guitar a while back.
#7
how much of an effort is it to stain it? does the stain wear off, and does it affect the guitar's playability in any way?
#8
It wont wear off or effect playability, its a stain that soaks into the wood and stays there.
