Ebony Fretboards. I know it's been done.
So lately I've been looking into getting a hollow body guitar and since I prefer ebony fretboards, that's been eliminating a lot of options. This, I thought, excluded Ibanez entirely as I know they won't do those. Bad news, I like Ibanez.
Then I stumbled upon the George Benson models which are listed as having ebony fretboards, which puts those rather high on the list if I can find one to try. Good news, I like Ibanez.
However, this got me thinking. Why do Ibanez do put ebony boards on boards on the GB models, but not their other guitars, especially when a lot of players seem to want them? I know I would be gassing for so many more Ibanez guitars if they had ebony boards. Anyone have the answer, or have I missed something?
