    I had Allen guitars slot a custom bass fretboard for me years ago. It was a 36" scale 7 stringer. They did a nice job.

    LMII used to have a tab entitled "shop services" or something but with their new layout I can't find it. I have had them custom slot a couple of boards for me. If you sent them the blanks they will have you sign a disclaimer since they didn't furnish the wood. Give them a call. Shipping maple back and forth from Honduras should not be a CITES problem, as you know some other woods might be.

    Yeah, they don't have a separate section for shop services now. It looks like the only way to get any of their services is by buying one of their fretboard blanks. When you select one, you can click on "customize product" which then gives you the fretting/radiusing options.

    Just call LMII
    I have them resaw all kinds of wood that I supply them. As recently as 3 weeks ago.

    They may not have that feature available on the website yet
