warmouth...teehee

Fretboard wood is largely an aesthetic decision, though some find a maple fretboard to be sticky. I would go with a maple (choose whichever type of maple appeals to you most) neck myself, it should help balance out the mahogany a bit tonally. If you plan on putting a solid colour finish over your neck though, don't bother buying AAA birds eye maple or anything.
I will show you something different from either
Your shadow in the morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you
I will show you fear in a handful of dust

rosewood freboard usually is good for metal, either maple or mahogany for the neck is nice also. Maple is probably better, has more sustain

It would be best advisable to put a finish on your neck unless you like warping, it just doesn't have to be glossy. It can be satin.
mmmk.
