Ebony is a popular tonewood, known best for delivering clear, crisp attacks. This wood is generally much brighter than maple and features a similar density. Ebony also features oilier pores than maple and extra brittle grains, resulting in a tight grain that doesn't require any finish. This quality gives the fingerboard a natural smooth, quick playing ability favoured by many professionals. Although there are many types of wood used to create fingerboards ebony is the darkest of them all. The wood works effectively throughout the instrument's range and is reliable for years.
