Fretboards

Birkonium custom fretboards are what’s commonly known as “Faux-Bound” This means that the fret slots are cut with an end mill and stop short of the edge of the board giving it the appearance of a bound fretboard without the extra work. The fret slot depth also follows the radius of the fretboard meaning that more material is left under the fret in the center of the board.

This binding and slotting technique yields a fretboard that’s stiffer than a traditionally slotted fretboard.

Use the “new setup” to order a fretboard for the first time. To re-order a fretboard that’s already been set up in the Birkonium system, select the “reorder” product.
