    Hi,

    Just guessing-but i imagine, that what music123 is referring to as rosewood is the pau ferro board. I could be wrong though. That's all

    arent all fenders rosewood? ( dont know exactly what they are i just know that maple is light and rosewood is dark)
    edit: im talking about basses and not custom artist ones.

    No, the Fender fives come with a Pau Ferro board which is part of the rosewood family of woods. They won't budge on this which sucks cuz I'd like a maple one instead of my pau ferro, but the PF sounds good. Nice and warm.

  6. I think the American Deluxe 5ers do come in maple too. Those (and the FMTs) are about the only ones that offer maple boards on 5ers (most being Pau Ferro). However no Fender 5 comes with a rosewood board.

    the only way you can get a maple board on an FMT is on a four string, fives only come in pau ferro. the american deluxes offer a maple board, but they are not as common.

    I just ordered a MIA Jazz DELUXE 5 with an ASH body and maple necka few months ago. For the new (2004 and up) they arent doing rosewood for the neck. However older MIA jazz did have the rosewood neck. I think music 123 website has an old update.
