Fingerboard Extension  Change text size for readability...  Print This Page

00:29Fingerboards usually terminate against the side of the stretcher band where the neck meets the pot. Some banjos have a fingerboard that is slightly higher and is allowed to extend over the head. This is often done on instruments with short necks such as tenors and banjeaurines as a way to increase the number of frets without increasing the scale. These instruments are often less suitable for frailing as the extra height of the fretboard interferes with the thumb action of the frailing stroke.
