    The sounds you can get from rosewood or maple fretboards do differ thats what people say. Dont know why m i not able to make out the difference yet......:-(....

    Anyways Rosewood necks give you a richer slightly deeper sound and maple will give u a bright ringy sound.....

    thats all i know bout those Fretboards....

    well maple gets discoloured over a period of time. And i hear its better than rosewood in some aspects

    He can even make out if the tone change caused when he keeps the Tube Driver pedal on a footstool instead of ground.

    Even if it gets discoloured u can always get it refurnished frm some luthier....and it takes years for the FretBoard to get discoloured.....

    For me both Fretboards are good......
