    I know that, but does the sound differ or its it just looks?
  4. sorry, i couldn't resist it! :)

    some say that maple is a little 'brighter' in its sound, its also softer then rosewood. These are really the only differences. Its a matter of opinion whether it makes any difference to the overall sound of an instrument.

    Maple is brighter, and rosewood gives you a better tone on the lowend, in a nutshell. Actually, I think rosewood is softer than maple.
