I like Ash the best

I saw Pantera live once, Dime changed into a body bag right there on stage.

my friend makes custom necks, he made one out of ash and I played a guitar with a neck with an ash fretboard on it and it was fine. I love it.

It's all about Maple man.

A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who isn't a close-minded moron.

Rosewood FTW. I like un-finished maple, but that doesn't come often, and varnished ones are all sticky and bad to me. I have an ebony neck acoustic, but sometimes it feels a bit dull and scratchy. Rosewood is my favourite.

I have an ebony board on my ESP, and the notes simply ring on that baby. For humbuckers though, rosewood, to keep the tone even.

If you want enhanced low end, Ebony.
For a warm mid-range, Rosewood.
For enhanced highs, (No, not drug highs. Doofuses.) MAPLE!!!!!
It also depends on what kind of guitar it is, and what you wanna play with it.
Look up "guitar tone woods" in google or something. Learn what woods do what, and then you'll understand better. I like maple and rosewood, but I haven't heard ebony yet. I'm currently building a guitar with an ebony fretboard, so that's about to change. It'll be a while, since it's an acoustic guitar...
