I like maple for fretted and ebony or polyester/epoxy coated whatever for fretless.
I really dislike rosewood, but I will take it with a thick poly coating for fretless(like a Pedulla Buzz).
I also like wenge and purpleheart, almost as bright as maple, with a less pronounced warmth than rosewood.
Experience is what you get, when you don't get what you want.
