Maple is the way to go. After years of rosewood I got a maple necked telecaster but hated how it felt so much. Took me a while to get used to the slippery/sticky dynamic. Once I got a feel for it I realized a lot of benefits. I don't perceive much of a tone difference from rosewood to maple, but the wood being one piece and totally sealed is a huge plus. Rosewood necks change a lot over time because they're thick veneers glued to maple, and left raw, exposed to the elements. The patina can get irreversibly disgusting on rosewood if you don't always have clean hands and take care of it. With maple you can be a slob then wipe it all off a month later, and you are always left with a natural, vintage worn patina over time.
