    That's where I went here, but it came with a maple neck.

    If your rosewood neck is a lighter tan rosewood you can use inkwell-type of ink or leather dye to stain it really dark, nearly ebony.

    One of my all-time favourite partscasters, including the much loved rosewood board.

    I love this guitar.

    Rosewood comes in so many shades, these days.

    If the rosewood has no reddish hue to it at all, avoid sunburst bodies - black or off white would be best, silver, or Shoreline.

    If this piece of rosewood is really reddish, consider a red body or basically color body except beige or Shoreline Gold.

    I've been trawling thru the epic photos thread and I'm getting overwhelmed again. Vintage white is special. What to do...?

    Can only imagine having a Rosewood board on my double bound sunburst, mines a Squier Classic Vibe Custom Telecaster.

    It's my opinion that all colors look good with a Rosewood board, but have to say that lighter colors look best because of the contrast thing.
