Maple vs. Rosewood Guitar Fretboards

Hi fam,

I recently ended up with two new (used) Stratocasters. One has a maple fretboard, and the other has a rosewood fretboard. This seemed like a perfect opportunity to do a little video on the tonal differences between these two types of woods.

So what do you think? Is there a difference in the sound of maple and rosewood, or is the difference mostly in the feel and look? There are some unique angles presented in this video to help us evaluate this age-old question.

Give it a watch, and let me know your opinion in the comments.
