Ive seen this quote pretty often in the classifieds. Anybody knows whats with the maple fetish? I have to admit even I fall pray to this maple-superior syndrome even though the best basses I have played all have rosewood fretboards. Is because maple is more 'rare'? It really beats me. I understand that each individual will have his own preference, but honestly when was the last time you heard someone say 'If only it had a rosewood fretboard'
