Hey everybody, what about this? There are two ways to have a Maple/Maple neck: 1) Install a maple fingerboard on the maple neck just the same way you would put on a rosewood or ebony board. This is often done with highly figured maple for the fingerboard. 2) Have the neck be one big piece of maple with no seprate piece for the board. I believe these basses require the Fender style Skunk stripe on the back of the bass (which curiously is virtually always Rosewood even on maple/maple necks). What's the difference sonically? Is there one? Which is better?
