Question Where find Vine and Pyramid Fretboards?

I'm looking for Sellers of (Routed) JEM Vine and Pyramid Fretboards for DIY-neck-mounting & ships to Europe.

I only know of two:
Monsterguitarshop, who has a bad rep and won't provide clear pictures of the boards beforehand,
and AIguitars on E-bay whom I bought a Rosewood Vine Fretboard from, that first arrived with wrong scale and wood parts chipped off in the CNC-cutting, payed return postage (Still not refunded after months and several reminders!), and got a 25.5" board but still with wood chipped off.

They won't answer emails.




AI has decent Clear Vine inlays, though.

Boards cost 30-40$ here.

Evidently looking for other manufacturers of said boards, who can provide good quality for good prices, and with a functional customer service.

I just got my AIGuitars board yesterday (maple with vines). I think mine had one spot similar too yours where there was a small chip from the cnc. Still very useable for me, especially since I will have black inlays so the black epoxy will end up filling it up anyways.

Re: Where find Vine and Pyramid Fretboards?

Can you post pics of the board, to see if they can do at least decent work, and to compare to my own board?

Maple should be "easier" to cut than rosewood.

Man, that sucks, it looks like it was pretty decent too, minus those flaws.

Re: Where find Vine and Pyramid Fretboards?

"AIGuitars" is a prick from the Bay. Crappy products and vendor IMO. He made
me a "custom" RG pick guard set and none of the stuff was even drilled right.
His templets were way off, and it smelled like burnt ass from the drilling he did
on the pearl board. I avoid him like the plague when I'm trolling the site. My advice
is stay far away, as he does way too much volume of guitar parts and doesn't
take the time for the little things like customer service.

Sorry it took me so long to post pics. Here's my maple board. I'll be doing black inlays so with black epoxy, mine should look just fine.
