Not sure if this is the right thread but owell:

I plan on getting a new guitar, because my guitar now sucks, as mentioned in my sig.

I plan on getting a custom Carcvin DC727(Alder body w/ maple neck)

-Floydd Rose
-Locking Nut
-Straplocks
-Stainless Steel Jumbo Frets
-Coil splitters
-Flamed Maple Headstock
-Greenburst on Flamed Maple finish

And I plan on putting a X2N 7 in the bridge and a PAF 7 in the neck.

I was just wondering if you had any suggestions or changes you think I should make.
Any help on choosing between a ebony and rosewood fretboard would be loved.

(BTW- I play metal and am getting into shred if that helps)

I'd actually switch the original pickups in the carvin to the M22's that carvin has. Their really nice, carvin pickups are some of the best factory stock pickups around. The fretboard option is all a matter of your opinion, but the ebony would look alot better with teh green. I know that in a few months i'll be ordering a carved top so i can say they are a good guitar company.

Rosewood

Ebony


Just to give you a basic feel for what it will look like.

Also, Gretsch wrote up a little thing about ebony boards and inlays, it might be worth a read.
http://www.gretschguitars.com/resources/definitions.html Look down towards the bottom for "Neo-Classic? Fingerboard"

Personally, I like the feel of rosewood boards, but I haven't played many ebony boards, only maple.
