Meet the fingerboard

This little piece of ebony will be the fingerboard for the guitar:

I need the fretboard to be ebony because its not going to be a standard fretboard - 2/3 of it will be... fretless. This is not a configuration that I can achieve in a simple way with an already finished (and fretted) neck, plus chances of getting a decent guitar with ebony fretboard for little money are basically zero.
So I decided that I will make a completely new fretboard for this guitar, out of a pre-made blank (with fret slots already made). This means that I will need to remove the fretboard one from the guitar, which is bound to be fun.
