Hello everyone, relatively new luthier here.
I'm currently challenging myself to make a reasonable sounding electric using only domestic woods, so here goes...
Has anyone here ever had any experience using walnut as a fingerboard material?
Considering it for a walnut/maple telecaster I am building, quartersawn of course.
I'm sure abrasion resistance won't be as good as a traditional fingerboard material, but what about tonality and stability in service?
I have seen a tele kit from Grizzly woodworking that has a walnut fingerboard, but other than this, I have never seen it used on an electric or acoustic.
