Personally, I love the look and feel of a Maple board. But I play an Ebony one at the minute. Both are far nicer than Rosewood to me.

I love maple fretboards, they looks so awesome, especially on white guitars.

I prefer the look and feel of maple, but I think a rosewood would fit my needs better.

I don't really notice that much of a difference between the two in the sound department. However, I think that as for looks, it really depends on the guitar.
I personally think that my red SG would look very odd with a maple fretboard, and in the same way my black Strat would look odd with rosewood or ebony.

But let's be honest,Brazilian and the other exotics are where it's at.

I like maple for both. It just seems to play smoother for me, and it looks better too.

I only own two guitars: both have rosewood fretboard. But I'd prefer maple if I was given a choice (Ibanez, I'm talking to you!).

My Lead II has a maple fretboard, but my Schecter has a Rosewood... I like the look and feel of maple, but rosewood is alright.
#19

I own a guitar with maple and a guitar with rosewood. I can honestly say that I prefer maple and that the idea that maple slows you down is myth meant to drive up the demand of ebony since it sounds closest to maple, but is much less and companies want money. I own a guitar with ebony too, it's hype, it really comes down to what kind of edge you want on your tone, and I like the attack maple gives.

Ascetically it depends on the guitar for me. Feel-wise probably rosewood.

Aesthetically, it depends on the guitar, but feel-wise, tone-wise, and most of the time aesthetically, it's gotta be maple for me. I find guitars with maple fingerboards to have a slightly brighter top end to them, which works out well for me with my high output pickups and high gain amps I use

That being said though, I've played some fantastic sounding and feeling guitars with rosewood fretboards. Haven't ventured into the land of exotic woods...yet :p

Thar ya go.

I love the look of Maple but it'd take a while for me to get used to playing it because I only own Rosewood fretboards.
No means maybe
