Im looking into a new Warmoth neck for me Jazz Bass and was kind of wondering what kind of neck wood would give me the best tone.

rosewood= spike in the mids
maple= spiked at low and high points

If you're talking about fretboard, maple's a bit brighter.

Mostly it's a look thing though. And feel.
haha

I've only played rosewood. I would just get whatever look better. It wouldn't affect the tone that much. Even if it did, there's always eq!

I like the clean look of maple, and it looks cooler when it gets old...

Maple usually looks the best.
Rosewood is a good option for the neck, but IMO ebony sounds the best. Ebony gives a glassier sound, with a more even sound balance.

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure most jazz guitars don't have maple, and they may have rosewood or ebony depending on the price. I would imagine ebony sounds best for jazz.

It's better with no teeth, trust me. Much fewer scars on my penis now that I've switched from seniors in high school to senior citizens.

Maple definetly. I just think rosewood has a weird look on fenders and other guitars with unfinished necks. I mean it looks nice but it looks artificial. I just like how with the maple necks it's all in one peice. I hate how the rosewood is layed on top of the maple like that it's just unnatural if you catch my drift.

I get your point, it makes sense, but i'm leaning towards rosewood

OK metalstillsucks, here we go.... Snakewood ( Piratinera Guianensis) is a distinctive wood, deep mahogany-red with irregularly shaped dark markings, resembling the markings on certain snakes or hieroglyphic characters- hence it names, snakewood and letterwood. It is one of the heaviest woods to have been used commercially, exceeding even lignum vitae in weight. Quartersawned snakewood is great for fretboards. Also, consider stainless steel frets, neodymium pickups and watch yourself fly....

It's one of the most expensive species of wood around, I guess. On the other hand, you don't need a log of the stuff- just enough for a fretboard.
