    Hi, I know there are many threads on these, but I was looking specifically at the difference in the two body woods available through Guitar Center/MF. The one that I like is soft maple with a maple fingerboard and the other model is agathis with a rosewood board. Has anyone compared the basic tone of these two as I would not be able to play before purchasing? What has more of an effect on the tone, body wood or fingerboard wood?

    Bump. This is old-ish but I'm curious. I know maple tends to be brighter, but I wonder if anyone has tried them out and see a difference in actual quality between the different woods.
  3. There's no noticeable difference when plugged in. The agathis is lighter, but the maple has better resonance for acoustics. Both play very nicely.
