Hello everyone, I am currently doing researches on what is available in the market as an alternative to ebony for fingerboards, as I'd like to try something else. Looking up online, I found: -''Musaica Imports Forte fingerboards'' made from 100% renewable resources. I'm not sure what it means. It kind of looks like some ''green'' advertisement to me. if you know more I'd be curious to get more details about it... -''Sound composite Archotech Fingerboards'' (They have 4 styles of fingerboards to choose from) Also the word IPE (not sure what it is standing for) was mentioned in different threads. I was wondering if someone had tried those materials before? If yes, how is it different from ebony to work with? Also is it different in terms of properties (density, stiffness etc.), does it impact the acoustic differently? (Ideally I'd like to find something quite close to ebony) I would also like to know if there is other alternatives/brands you knew about? Thank you, Charline
