Is it possible to look at a rosewood fretboard and determine what species of rosewood it is? For example, I have 3 strats. I know one is Indian Rosewood because I custom ordered it. The other two are second hand guitars and they both look very different. I'm just curious (not starting a debate on types of rosewood, sound, etc). I probably need pics......

If that’s a Fender, I’d wager it’s a pre 2010 CS ‘65 reissue with a nice smooth/oily Madagascan rosewood board.
