One use that Jay_m is probably thinking of is fretboards of musical instruments. Ebony has been the usual wood for years (hard, resists wear from string use) with Rosewood being the alternate wood (same properties). But now with both being on the endangered list and considering all of the trouble Gibson has recently gone though I am sure other woods are being considered. Hophornbeam though not as beautiful as ebony and rosewood would do the job. Maybe it could be dyed to “spruce” it up. :)
