I have had alder and ash teles all with maple necks. Went shopping and played a lot of 2014 teles with rosewood necks. I play faster and easier on the rosewood (which is why I was interested) BUT... the tone seemed flat or lacking body on all rosewood teles I tried (could not find any that sounded fat and pretty). Too me, it was not just different flavors, but the rosewood was lacking... So it seems like... Maple fretboard- harder to play but sounds better Rosewood fretboard - much easier to play, but tone sounds thinner or less body Have you found rosewood fretboard teles to sound as good as maple?
