This here seems to be a post Matt Korean Corsair GT in my near vicinity but out of my price range (seems way to high). It says it has an ebony fretboard but i can't find any info on that. A nice one, but these days i need a real good deal to purchase any new gitfiddles.

Ebony fretboard? Huh.

Nice looking Corsair, really like these. Is pricey though. I wonder how those Fender pup's sound?! Never been a big fan of single coils.

I'm with ya on the price, gotta be low for the Wife to approve!

That's a lot of dosh for a load of off cuts with a veneer over the top.
Nothing like the quality stuff from Mats.

Ebony?! Another local Westie Laughhard

Try "ebonized" i.e., Black paint. Maybe.

Yup, my thoughts as well, painted fretboard for shizzle ( as discussed in the Dynasty thread). Yeah, maybe i'll try one those Korean Westies someday.

I know. I love these "ebony fretboard" listings. Laughing Nothing like a real ebony fretboard. Those are so nice. Cool

And don't go for a Korean unless you really enjoy relatively lighter sounding, boardering on shredder type offerings. Just so different from the Mats. Good in their own respect however.

The only guitar i own with a REAL ebony fretboard is my Vandenberg Fernandes neck thru trans red Revolver. Looks beautiful and feels a bit different after a bit of playing.
