I like the feel of maple. If I had one I'd be worrying about the strings chewing it up though: does anyone own one and is this a problem? I've seen it on alot of old fender (guitars - not basses) where the top few frets are kind of grey coloured under the strings.

Hell yeah!

I clicked rosewood by accident, but maple is so much nicer
#9
probably rosewood on lighter colors and red, but on darker colors and sunbursts I prefer maple. although on some of those dark colors I like rosewood, so I put rosewood
#10
Mapleeee.
#11
I'm waiting for the new MIM Fender Bass to come out with the maples. I'm going for the Precision in the Lake Placid Blue or Candy Red.
#12
i like the tone of maple but the feel of rosewood.
myy favourite is ebony, but they are rare.

when i get a decent bass, maple definately.
#14
I like both...
Love the clarity of the Maple... But I also dig the fullness of the Rosewood.
But, I'd been craving Maple for aaagggeeessss
after I got my Jaguar.
I go through phases of Maple<Rosewood, or Rosewood<Maple.
I need both to be satisfied.

Maple for sure
#16
Maple. I actually prefer pau ferro over rosewood. I used to love rosewood but its a bit of a pain to maintain in a drier climate.
#17
I'm a maple junky. ::type
#18
Maple for the feel. I honestly don't think there's any difference in tone between Rosewood and maple, at least not to me.
#19
ebony first, then purpleheart, then wenge, then maple.
#20
Pau Ferro owns all. It's got a great growl, and it looks f***ing amazing!
#21
Maple with blocks and bound. That's the sex right there.
#22
Used the searchbar, no results, so it's time..
Its a sad time we're in when we must protect ourselves from the searchbar nazis in this way
EDIT; to be on topic, I used to only like rosewood, or ebony. But I'm after a maple neck next. I love the way they age

What's the difference between the two? Hell, with all types of woods?

I actively seek this! If anyone has any advice as to what maple finishes will age this way and which won't, I'd appreciate that info!
#25
Rosewood for me, I like the feel quite a bit more. Maple isn't very comfortable for me.
#26
I own 2 maple necked Fenders and 0 rosewoods - I much prefer the look, feel, and snap of maple fingerboards.
#27
I like the look of maple, but rosewood feels and sounds so much better to me.

Subtly done .
You have an unhealthy obsession with maple though.
My next bass may just be a maple necked jazz so I'm putting this small so you may not see it and I don't have to directly admit to it.
Uh-oh.... MOD EDIT!!!!
MY NEXT BASS MAY JUST BE A MAPLE NECKED JAZZ. I TRIED TO PUT THIS SMALL, BUT NOOOOO! MODNESS HAD TO UNCOVER SUCH BLASPHEMY.
I AM BORIS JOHNSON!

Rosewood and ebony ftw. None of this blondie bollocks.
#30
MAPLE.
I don't mind rosewood if its bound and blocked.

As far as looks, Rosewood owns face.
#35
Macassar Ebony, Wenge. Hate the feel and tone of Rosewood in most cases, and the tone and colour of maple in most cases.
#36
I prefer maple both in terms of looks and playability.
