Re: HELP!!! Jatoba (Brazilian Cherry) Wood for JEM Jr. Fretboard??
Is this a trick question?
You can permanently stain it darker if it's that important to you, just get some dark wood stain and follow the instructions on the bottle. Wear gloves and use a cloth to apply it rather than a brush.
I think it looks fine but I have many guitars, all with Rosewood fretboards and some are really light and some really dark, but most are somewhere in between.
