I have used it for a fretboard. It is not splintery, but it has a nickname you should be aware of, Mexican crackwood, because it does like to develop checks and cracks, especially along the black grain lines. However, I have used it successfully for bridges as well so if you have a good piece, go for it. If you get any checks, fill with sawdust and CA and level the repair. My last ziricote fretboard developed several small checks I had to fill but you cant see them once filled and the CA hopefully prevents the check from spreading.
