Not likely, if you never oil the board and leave it in the sun it will.

If it was likely to happen noone would use it

The thing is, when ebony dries out it splits, when rosewood does it just gets gross and shrunken.

Anyway, as long as you take ok care of it you'll be fine.

However much it needs it, I use Fret Doctor from http://www.beafifer.com/seven.htm

I've tried that, Fast Fret, and Gibson Fretboard oil, this is the only one that really works and doesn't just make it look nice for a few days.

Anyway, if the fretboard starts to feel rough and you see the pores opening up, it definitely needs some, I use a little every time I restring, although it might need more the first time.

You should also do this with rosewood, but not on maple because it's finished.

ah, see ive had a rosewood for a year and a bit and ive never oiled it.


It probably needs it, try some out, it makes a big difference in the way it looks and feels, and it'll make it last longer.

I had an ebony fingerboard for 25 years, left in in hot car trunks, etc. Never had a problem.
