Hobo Fiddle Fretboard - Fully Fretted 17 -inch Scale - Custom-Engraved with Real Hobo Glyphs!
These fretboards were specially designed by Ben Gitty for use on his Hobo Fiddles. They are fully fretted to a 17-inch scale (the standard Hobo Fiddle scale) with a jumbo "zero fret". The fret position markers are custom engraved with real hobo glyphs at the 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, 12th and 15th frets (there are 16 total frets). They measure 11 1/4 inches long, 1/4 inch thick and just under 1 1/2 inches wide. We use "rustic" woods for these, such as the wormy red oak shown in the photos. Wood species may vary but are guaranteed to look great.
