If they is such a difference in tone/sound then why aren't acoustics offered in both?
Because rosewood is better?
I know that I have seen several acoustics with maple fret boards, But i agree it is not as common.
Because all the cool guys use Ebony.
Because of the existance of ebony.
Maple boards almost always are seen on maple necks, which are pretty rare for acoustic guitars. Unfortunately, unfinshed maple gets really ugly after a while and wouldn't look so hot on a nice acoustic guitar. I'm also certain that most cats would not enjoy a finished board on an acoustic. It seems like its really a cosmetic/wear issue more than anything else.
Good points. :AOK
