Hey guys, everybody talks about this, and when they do, they talk about the sound. I'm wondering, are there any playability differences between the different woods? My dad always used rosewood, so the strat he got me when I was a kid was rosewood. Getting used to the rosewood meant that once I started bass, I automatically chose rosewood. In stores, I try out rosewood instruments. I have actually never played a maple guitar or bass. Can somebody help me out?
