Ah...but he said Macassar ebony. Different wood. I've made several fingerboards out of it and it's great stuff.
My bad! I misread that! Checked it out. This wood is on the red list:
Sustainability: http://www.wood-database.com/wood-articles/restricted-and-endangered-wood-species/This wood species is not listed in the CITES Appendices, but is on the IUCN Red List. It is listed as vulnerable due to a population reduction of over 20% in the past three generations, caused by a decline in its natural range, and exploitation.
I am not trying to be a environmental activist here
Just curious if there are any "greener" exotic woods out there that will (or can be made to look like) Ebony/Rosewood fretboards.
