Maple Valley appears a pale amber color and over time will darken to sienna. Subtle layers will be visible as a grain on the face of a radiused fingerboard in color.

Low maintenance, minimal shrinkage, and a density that is right in the middle of the range for ebony, there are only advantages to using Richlite on your next guitar creation.
Richlite fretboards are incredibly durable while maintaining an ebony look and feel. They are easy to maintain and withstand re-fretting without chipping. Richlite is a durable product requiring no special conditioning or cleaning product. It will not absorb or corrode from oils, perspiration or dirt.
This acoustically superior material offers a consistent density that is moisture acclimated and inherently stable.
Richlite machines with standard tooling, just like working with hardwood.
Richlite can be left with an unfinished satin finish or brought to a high-polish finish with buffing compound, as desired.
Fret slots can be cut with carbide cutters or diamond tooling. Due to the hardness of Richlite versus natural wood material, fret slots must be cut slightly wider.
All Richlite-to-wood mating surfaces must be sanded for proper adhesion (80 to 100 grit recommended).

Handmade from many layers of high quality custom craft paper, Richlites surface texture comes from the natural variation in the way fibers lay within the paper. Composed of approximately 65% FSC®-certified or recycled paper content and 35% phenolic resin, Richlites color comes from a combination of the paper and the amber tone of the resin.

Hand made in the U.S.A. and FSC® Certified.
