I have a question about the color of the plastic fretboard on the Fleas, especially the Lava bodied ones. In some pictures, the fretboard looks black, such as this one:

In other pictures the pictures the fretboard looks like very dark brown. This picture is supposedly with a plastic fretboard.

Is it just the lighting, or do the fretboards on the Flea come in slightly different colors?

mine is black, but under a very bright light, it has a slight very very dark brown tinge.

Under most circumstances though, its black!

We have this Flea
(http://www.fleamarketmusic.com/store/Scripts/prodView.asp?idproduct=238)
and the fretboard is definitely black. My SamAsh is particularly well stocked in Fleas and all the ones there are black as well. I think it is just the lighting in that picture.

its definitely just the lighting.... the fretboard is also a different "plastic" than the actual body I believe or cause it has grooves..could be wrong though..

It's black.

To quote Nigel Tufnel from Spinal Tap:

"It's like, 'how much more black could this be?' and the answer is none. None more black."

Thanks all. I think it is definitely the lighting now. There must be some weird colors in the flash they used.
