the fretboard wood does not affect tone much (i know that is arguable).

it is basically your preference on look and feel and play.

Biggest difference apart from looks is feel, maple feels a little "harder" than rosewood.



waht do you mean by harder?

In terms of feel maple is a bit smoother to play on IMO, especially tinted ones. Other than that, some prefer one over the other because for aesthetic reasons.

I love Ebony fingerboards the best, the dark wood is awesome.

I think it does make a difference, but very light. I used to prefer maple a lot more than rosewood, but now i love ebony and rosewood more.

maple has smaller grains, so it vibrates less or something,
and anyway, its sharper & brighter than rosewood, and i think ebony's moreso than rosewood
so it'd be like maple is to rosewood, what rosewood is to ebony

maple is brighter than rosewood. rosewood is a warm tonewood/.

Also i treid a strat with a maple before and it felt like my hands were stuck to the board. when i tried to slide up and down the board it felt like my hands were stuck.I was like when your hands get sweaty and and like u try to slide it accross something but it wont. i hope u know aht i mean..is it jsut that guitar or all maple boars like this
