    I need a slab body or semi-hollow electric guitar with a very dry fretboard so when the humidity goes down to 10%, frets will not sprout. Richlite, rocklite, carbon fiber, baked maple. Any suggestions ? Gibsons and some Godins with richlite fretboards are all too expensive, I don't want to spend more than $500. For an environment where a humidifier is not practical and a couple guitars already sprouted their frets.

    Roasted maple is very stable in my experience, in Minnesota which runs from very humid to very dry.
