    I like anything with a maple board!

    As far as Ps go, IMHO they are too dark sounding with rosewood but perfect with maple.
     
  5. The p with maple is awesome...nothing sounds better to my ears than that bass going through a loud amp...
     
  6. I have a P bass with a rosewood fingerboard. What is the difference between the rosewood and maple? I know its the wood, but wut else? And if maple is better, how come there are a lot more rosewood fingerboard basses?
