    Ive never owned a bass with a maple neck, only rosewood...are there any sonic differences between the 2?

    Infamous,
    If you do a search, you'll find dozens of threads where the tonal differences between maple and rosewood are debated and just as many threads that debate whether the fingerboard wood has any impact on tone at all. :D However, to answer your question....most people think that the fingerboard wood does impact tone, and most think that maple is brighter and rosewood is fatter and warmer. Now, do that search to really get into the finer points of the discussion..... :D Have fun. ;)
