I know there are a lot of guitar players here so I thought I'd pose a question for you. I used to play quite a bit in the early 90s. Haven't picked up a guitar in a long time. The threads on here have made me want to pick it back up. I just talked my wife into letting me get another one. I've pretty much decided on getting a white standard Strat (Mexican made for now.) However, I haven't decided on the fretboard. I used to play rosewood and haven't really played maple much at all. With the Strat, I think they look way better with the maple neck. I will of course try them both out and I'll probably end up with the rosewood but I thought I'd ask you guys what your thoughts are. Do you play maple? Do you play rosewood? Which do you prefer and why? Note: I didn't include ebony because that's not really an option for me at this point.
