I Have Ebony Fretboard on my Classic White Studio
Nope, It was changed out to a Warmoth 'Radius' years ago. It's factory neck (maple board) got destroyed before I got the guitar - I was told it was an 'angry girlfriend' incident - I didn't ask any further... The only thing original about the gutiar these days is the body. I sold the neckplate for $400 and the original tuners (single-line klusons) for $550 a couple of years ago when the vintage market started going crazy. I figured anyone who would pay that much money for a few hunks of metal deserved to be broke! LOL Anyway, these days, she's sporting a Floyd Rose, some Markster Handwounds, and a nice Trans Blue finish courtesy of ReRanch. Here are some pics:The strat came with ebony board from the factory or did you change the whole neck?
Sweet!!!!I've got basically the same questions cause I have a 90' black LP studio with ebony fretboard. It does definitely seem like they are hard to come by. I've had it for about 7-8 years and everywhere I take it I'll always hear someone say "Man I've never seen one of those before". Testing out amps in shops and I've only had like two people that work at the shops know anything about this subject. But most people don't realize that it's anything out of the ordinary until they get up close which is fine by me.
Wow....that's nice. From a tonality perspective that guitar could probably go against a custom of the same year on a bindfold test. Sweet!Sure, here you go. I don't think I've seen another pic of one of these posted now that I think about it. Click on the link to get a closer look.

wow, you got a winner then , one you played a sliky smooth ebony board, rosewood is an also ran........This might seem like a really stupid question but I'm gonna ask anyway.
My 95 les paul studio has an ebony fretboard. It seems to be pretty unusual, as I think I've come across only one other with the typically black fretboard in all these years. Are they rare/uncommon? Does anyone know?
Do they sound any better/worse than other studios with different wood?
I know I ask a lot of questions but I have a lot of time on my hands.
