Nope, rosewood is used in some really great guitars as well.

rosewood may be less expensive to manufacture. But that doesn't mean it's only used in cheaper guitars. a lot of nice, expensive guitars use rosewood fretboards, but a nicer type of rosewood.

what about maple? what are the pros and cons of each wood?


Maple is a little brighter, and can be a bit stickier at times. It comes down to personal preference.

I believe maple gets sharper, more disconnected tones, and rosewood gets smoother and 'warmer' tones.

Disconnected as in it doesn't flow as well from note to note. Maple is brighter, and rosewood is warmer. Thats the simplified version. :P
