Hi all, I'm much more a Tele guy, but I think at least a Strat must be in everyone's arsenal, so... I'm constantly looking for one. The other day I stumbled on a Strat that drew my attention: it's an Americano Pro II, in shell pink (that I LOVE). This AM Pro has a Rosewood Neck. (Pictures below).
Has anyone ever tried such a Strat? I know AM Pro are great guitars, but I'm curious about the neck.
Do you tell any difference from a maple neck?
BTW It's selling, new, at 2,099 EUR (that with today's exchange is 2,099 USD).

I have an all-rosewood neck on one guitar (a Shergold Masquerader, not a Fender). I don’t think it feels noticeably different from a satin-finished maple neck (in other words it feels really nice) — but it’s spectacular to look at!

All very nice; love the look of the all rosewood neck.

I didn't have it for very long, but my foray into an all rosewood neck guitar included a rosewood top - an EBMM Axis SuperSport I briefly owned back in late 2009-early 2010. Sorry, I don't have a really good photo on this device of the full neck; it's probably on a flash drive somewhere in a drawer:
