i own a fender american stratocaster, which i love very much, but iv been wondering if it is possible to replace the maple fretboard( i think) to a roswood fretboard( i think). what is the difference beetween them and which sounds better?
mine looks kinda yellow wood colord fretboard.

please help!

you would have to get yourself a new neck for that, it the easiest way to do it, and maybe the cheapest

why replace the fretboard if you don't know what you've got at the minute will be better or worse than what you're going to replace it with??

Anyway, I agree with fire within.

I like rosewood fingerboards usually, but not on strats, so I guess its a preference.

same, the only time it looks good on a strat is with the fender sunburst colour

im not sure of the difference between the types of wood on fretboards, other than maple is sealed and rosewood isnt

what are you all talking about?

rosewood OWNS

i like it on all guitars, for the most part. maple sounds good on strats, but i can't think of another company that uses it.

although the eric johnson strat, though bulky, sounds flipping sweet.

ps. teles use maple, and they are good.
