    yea I love roswood necks, and they look cool on darker finishes too My guitar that I designed will have rosewood as standard and maple is the option.

    Not a big fan of Rosewood - maple is my preference.

    Both are good, depending on the sound you're after.
    Also depends on the body wood you use, and whether it's Indian or Brazilian rosewood.
    If you get one made with rosewood try and get a slab board.

    My main guitar has rosewood, but I prefer the look of Maple in many cases. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Are we talking fretboard here, or actual neck wood?

    As for fretboards, I actually prefer ebony, although I love the rosewood on my Strat, too. I do plan on owning a nice maple-equipped "Lenny-esque" Strat one day, though, I really dig the snappy, jazzier sound that the maple boards seem to impart on Strats.

    For actual neck wood, all of my personal experience consists of either maple or mahogany, so I can't really comment on rosewood other than to say I've played some really nice PRSs with sweet rosewood necks that I wouldn't hesitate to own.

    I think it just depends on what sound you might be after. I tend to like a more harsh and loose sound, so I like rosewood. SGs don't even have maple, that I know of. I also have a few guitars with maple, it just depends on what sound and feel you might be hoping for.

    I got one on my Ibanez RG470 (at least, that's what I think it is). I like the feel of it.

    Then again, I like the feel of my Wolfgang neck.

    Both are different, I like both of them.

    So to answer the question, do I like em (Rosewood Fretboards - assuming that's the one on my Ibanez), then yes, I love em.

    Do I prefer it over my Wolfgang ? Hmmm, dunno. I don't think I have a preference one over the other, although I find the Wolfgang easier to play...

    Not really thought about why though... ?
