i'm ordering a new lakland
should i get maple or rosewood?
oh maple for sure.... and order two please, my birthday is coming up, ya know?!??!
Ummmmm.....like, doy. Totally maple.
Really depends on your preference. What do you like the look/feel of better? Do you slap? What type of music do you play?
RW..........the only way to go!!
hell i usually keep my tone rolled off!
Can't go wrong either way, therefore go with Maple
Personal opinion? Rosewood. I'm into a more vintagey tone and do not slap. Fingerstyle only. If you're into the whole slap or whatever thing then maple might be for you. IMO, YMMV, etc.
I've owned both a JO4 and JO5 with maple boards and now I own a JO4 with rosewood board. Honestly, I like both....the only reason I have the JO4 with the rosewood board now is because it was nearly a pound lighter than my other JO4.
Maple looks so darned good on that bass- I would get maple and adjust your tone with your amp
Maple...like mine I just got!!
If you roll your tone off you may not notice much of a difference, but I'm going to go ahead and recommend MAPLE.
maple it do be!!
be hear on friday!!
What color's the finish?
I hate to be a turd in the punchbowl, but I like rosewood!
I'd definitely say Rosewood then. I just sold off my Joe Osborne 5 with a Maple Board. It was probably one of the if not the best sounding lakland I owned, however...my old JO5 with rosewood had something really special about it too. I think it's more classic getting rosewood.
Dat's true but if he is rolling the tone off he will get a punchier, yet still warm tone with maple. With rosewood it would be less articulate, less tone if you will. All that said, with the tone rolled off the thing he'll notice the most is the character of whatever PICKUPS he puts in there, and even more so, where he plucks with his fingers!
syrup season is coming...
