: For years I've sworn by rosewood over maple fingerboards. They just seem better, faster and more solid.
: Can anyone explain why?
: I've thought about it and considering that I never actually touch the fingerboard, I can't come up with any reason why one is better than the other.
Bob, I also prefer rosewood over maple, not only on bass but on guitar as well.
Rosewood is a softer wood, and to me it is easier to 'dig into' a rosewood
fretboard than a maple. It definitely feels faster, more solid, and overall
more comfortable. Your not alone in your preference.
