Its personal prefernce.
I prefer glossed mahogany necks with ebony or rosewood fingerboards on my acoustics.
Unfinished maple is in my opinion the fasted neck though.

Do they affect stuff:
tonewise: NO
feelwise: Yes, rosewood: tougher maple: slippier bendier.
whatever you want, try them out

Yeah, unfinished, like on Zakk Wylde's guitar, is faster to play, cos your hand sticks to smooth finishes.

I prefer maple necks. They're cheaper and they work, and it saves precious exotic wood.
I like rosewood boards, however, cos they look nice. I don't think there's any significant difference in sound.

Well, I like maple necks, with a rosewood fingerboard. Get the neck that feels the best, and get the fingerboard that looks the best.

It depends on the guitar. On something like a strat or tele I like maple. On my LP I like the ebony.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

Threadstarter: if one of the two was clearly better than the other, don't you think fender would make you pay more for the better one, rather than giving the option of either fretboard at the exact same price? Seriously, I'm sick of this 'what's the best' crap. There is no 'best.' if there was we'd all save up and buy it and you could all go away and stop bothering me.

birdseye maple neck and fretboard. pure sex

I knew a dude that had a custom Strat with a birdseye maple neck, and he didn't even own a case! I wanted to shoot him, and take his guitar. God, those necks are lovely.
