A set of one bridge blank and one fingerboard blank cut from quartersawn persimmon, local to us in Tennessee. Persimmon, Diospyros virginiana,┬áis a dense hardwood native to the Southeastern U.S., making it a good substitute for ebony. It can by dyed dark if you’d like to maintain the look of tradition ebony. (Contact us here if you’d like us to dye these pieces for you.)
