    Has anybody seen or played one of these? Is there something about the P90's that don't mesh with the Maple?

    I own 3 guitars with Soapbars, all rosewood boards, and thats all I ever seen out there.

    I would think P90's having a little more grind in them than single coils makes them perfect for maple fretboards, but apparently somethings up.

    Do I have too special order a $3000 guitar to find out? Maybe after the lottery.

    PRS CU22 Soapbars came standard with maple fretboards I believe. I've had 2 maple-fretboard-ed ones and they sounded good to me, but pretty much like the rosewood ones to me (my current CU22 Soapy has a rosewood fretboard; I prefer the feel).

    Lentz Prototype DL-90. Love the Maple Neck /Ash Body combo. And, Lentz does a great job of winding his own P90s.

    Plays great. . . sounds great.
