Gumby, is that fretboard gloss, or tung? It just looks so shiny?

It's the "Hard As Nails" epoxy finish on the fretboard.

Terrifying glass fingerboard. It's got a Carvin pickup in it. :wink:

I feel bad every time i put my fingers near the board. Those smudges are like murder to the look of the Epoxy.

Guys, I know that it's an intensive, toxic process, but I have to ask: is there any way to do that on a fretted instrument?

So on an ebony board, you can see the fingerprints on the HAN? Hmmm. My BEM shows nothing....interesting. Is that what you meant?

Yes! On my bass, i can see smudges from my fingers and the marks that the strings are making on the HAN. That's why the only think i would change is a BEM board, if i was to redo it.
