What is the more high-end tone wood for an acoustic guitar? What would you choose? Rosewood back and sides? or Mahogany Back and sides?

It pretty much comes down to personal preference. I happen to like Rosewood (warmer) better, some people like Mahogany (brighter) better. There isn't really a huge difference. Your best bet is to go play guitars with each to form your own opinion.

When it comes to price, Rosewood costs around twice as much as Mahogany, I believe.

Gear:
Partscaster/Tele into a bunch of pedals, a Maz 18 head, and a Z Best cab.

btw forget talkin about tonal differences between the two and that its a matter of preference...I just wanna hear what you guys prefer and what you think has a "better tone". Both woods are bescribed as being warm sounding anyways...

I prefer rosewood but it's just preference. Just buy a good guitar and decide which would you think looks better
Sound is similar.

Most people will pick rosewood. I used to but then I got a guitar with mahogany back and sides and it grew on me.
