Fingerboard Woods (Rosewood vs Maple)
I've been wanting to get another bass this year, and I'm curious about what players are thinking about fingerboard woods. I've heard that maple is a softer wood, so the neck profile tends to be a bit thicker to provide support (in comparison to rosewood.)
This made sense to me, wether it's true or not????
I've been looking at the G&L L-2000 series. When looking at their stats, they mention both woods as options, but the same neck profile for both. I thought this was contradicting what I had been told.
I went to fender and pulled up the p-bass specs and compared two basses with different fingerboard woods, same specs yet again.
It's gonna be fretted, so it's not too much of a tone thing yea?
I'm not quite sure if I'll go round or wound for strings.
Has anyone really noticed a difference between how woods react to string style? I know that's kind of abstract, but... doesn't hurt to put that out there.
Thanks for your time,
wish y'all the best
