So yea, what difference will it make if I have a rosewood or maple neck on a telecaster?
Not much to elaborate on, I just don't know. I think maple looks cool. Should anything else factor into the equation?

probably. eh?

I don't know how real this is, but when i play maple and rosewood strats, the maple ones feel flatter and the rosewoods are slightly more rounded, on the fretboard that is. Rosewood has a slightly darker sound, and maple is brighter

Nah, thats just neck radius.

the wood your fretboard is made of gives you a different sound? i thought it just went off the body...

Cheers fellers, that clears that one up.
It's for a pet project of mine by the way, I'm gonna buy a stock squier standard tele and then buy pickups and parts over a few months and make a jeff buckley tele replica. So all the pickups etc... and the mirror scratchplate.
May have to consider forking out the extra dough for a fender though on account of the neck.
Still, would save me the trouble of buying the extra neck pickup...
hmm, need to meditate on it.


oh, sorry btw,

I honestly typed in those exact words into the search bar but it just didn't work. Maybe i only searched the guitar forum, but that said, there's already plenty of em in there. Cheers though.

Yeah rosewood has a darker sound. Maple is bright, sometimes too bright in my opinion. But an anomaly I just discovered; I was playing at looking at a Fender Highway 1 Strat with a maple neck, and it didn't sound too bright. Sounded great... I think I'm actually going to buy it. But then, I plug in another with a rosewoood neck, and it even sounded brighter. Yeah I know it sounds crazy. But its true.
