    A new Fender P bass... I'd love to have both the maple and rosewood boards, but can only have one.

    Which one, and why?? :eyebrow:

    Whichever looks better with the body color you choose. Because the difference in sound between the two is negligible. Your choice of strings, technique, etc. will have a much larger effect on your sound.

    Maple, it simply looks far more elegant than the rosewood which gives the bass a disjointed look.

    I tend to agree with this. Also, I generally prefer rosewood to maple, but I (personally) dislike when there is a rosewood board with an exposed maple headstock (that doesn't match the body).

    Get one of these. The best precision bass you'll ever find.
    No joke. I love this bass, and I'm not a precision guy.
