Is there any difference in these 2 woods on the fretboard? I obviously know that Ebony is darker, but feel-wise and playability wise, is there any difference? Alot higher end guitars tend to have Ebony fretboards, and I was wondering that if they feel smoother or play faster or something like that.

well ebony is a really hard wood, and theres a sound difference in both, probably not enough to really tell tho
Gear:
Jackson DKMG Dinky (EMG 81/85)
Ibanez GIO (i put a Dimbucker in the bridge)
Crate GT65 (65 watts) to be upgraded soon, suggestions welcome (must be tubed)

Ebony has an overall 'tighter' sound, not that I noticed a whole lot.

Ebony is smoother and doesn't get dirty and oilly from what I've read. It's meant to stay clean, or be easier to clean.

Ebony is more like the tone of maple than rosewood. Brighter, more cutting than rosewood.

ebony looks better, feels smoother when you play and has a brighter sound, I prefer it over rosewood on electrics.
