Re: RG2550E: Cracked Fingerboard or just grain?
I would like to tell you i have an answer but i can only speculate. In my opinion the board looks o.k. but those are the biggest pores i have ever seen on a rosewood board. I own an old Japanese RG470L and it has a rosewood board and the wood looks similar but the pores on my board are nowhere close to that size!! This could be because of a lack of oil on the board, i would soak the board down in Lemon oil and see if the pores don't appear as much. The bottom line is you should talk to Rich Harris at a website called Ibanez rules, Rich will have an answer for you. If Rich doesn't know nobody does.: One last thing if it does not bother you when you play it, then it does not matter. I really just think you got an ugly piece of rosewood.
