I ordered a Classic Vibe Custom but will not have it for a couple of weeks. The one I ordered is the newer model and has the new indian laurel fretboard instead of the rosewood. I didn't think much of it because the guitar was on sale for a great price and I have always wanted one of the CVCs. After looking more into it, though, I have noticed a pretty consistent opinion seems to be that the IL boards are lighter in color or seem to look more dry than Rosewood, but I have also read reviews from several people who say the IL varies from guitar to guitar and some look great while others don't. I haven't seen much discussion suggestion they affect the sound though. My main goal for the guitar was eventually to replace the neck with an all maple one, so I guess I am just wondering if anyone has any experience with these new IL boards or any thoughts on them? Or any "homemade" pictures? It seems that almost every online store uses the same stock images from Squier which makes it hard to tell how much the IL boards vary from guitar to guitar.
