    I like rosewood. It is supposed to sound darker than maple too right?

    Maple relics better over time. Your dirty ol' p bass will look way dirtier...

    ...especially sexy with a red tort pickguard.
     
  8. Look at the maple it sounds clanky. I love clanky sound.

    Hmmm...let me do the math. I've got 5 maple boards... and only two rosewood boards... so I personally like maple at least twice as much... but rosewood is nice too!:D

    The Maple by a mile, rosewood looks like crap without a matching headstock.

    I like to see that color blue with a maple board. Rosewood is good but, I see it all the time.
     
  14. If the pickups were cream colored to more closely match the maple I would have voted differently, although bass "B" needs a black bridge and knobs to complete the picture.

    Depends on whether or not you keep that pickguard.

    I think the darker fingerboard *looks* better... But I prefer the sound of the P with maple board...
     
  20. maple all the way
