rosewood or maple?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by bassboy_jordan, Mar 11, 2002.


  1. I was just wondering what the comparitive advantages are of maple or rosewood necks.
    eg. sustain, etc.

    I like the look of rosewood much more and cant feel too much diference in playing between the two, so feel free to enlighten me:)

    Hi b_j,
    I'm a rosewood kinda guy, but if you do a search, you'll find a buttload of threads on rosewood vs maple.

    I think Ebony is probably the best all-round wood for use on fingerboards - it's used on most DBs as well!
