Out of those, the black/black/maple but white with the regular white pickguard and rosewood I think would look better.

you realize that there is more than a color difference between maple and rosewood fretboards right? They feel completely different.

What kind of differences? I'm curious about Maple fretboards myself, but love the rosewood colour.

Im likely a little opinionated here, but white guitars are sexy.

justin, that was easily the most inspiring, helpful piece of advice anyone has ever given me in regards to my musical pursuits.

Yup I know...i own 6 rosewood boards and one maple. Im used to the feel of rosewood, but have no problems playing maple. To the guy that inquired maple has a much brighter tone whereas rosewood is warmer and knocks off some of the highs. Also, with maple fretboards, they are usually finished and can sometimes be sticky. I do prefer rosewood, but can go either way and I think that some colors look much better w/ maple boards.

or
Olympic White w/White pickguard w/ maple fretboard
