This new shell inlay which has rich deep whiskey brown to almost orangish tones is made from select Angel Wing shell. We think you will find it as smooth as a glass of Tennessee Whiskey and will no doubt inspire great tone.
This premium grade ebony has been selected for its natural rich and very dark black coloring. While it is mostly black, there is some subtle grey banding running through it. It is then finished with a nitrocellulose lacquer topcoat just like the finish on fine guitars.
This premium grade ebony Inlay has been selected for its rich dark coloring and then dyed completely black with India Ink and finished with a matte fretboard oil. This is the same technique used by luthiers such as Martin and Taylor to make their fingerboards completely black. If you want a capo that matches your black ebony fretboard, then this is it!
