Scalloped Fingerboard← Back to project's list
Many guitarists turn their fingerboard into a scalloped one in order to achieve quicker playing. By removing pieces of wood between the frets, small dents are created, thus helping fingers not to touch the fingerboard wood when pressing on the fret. This way, playing becomes faster.
Usually scalloping is done in the lower part of the fingerboard, where the distance between the frets is small. Nevertheless, scalloping can be done throughout the whole fingerboard.
