Okay, I’m sure it’s been said before but, I just searched for rosewood neck guitars and of about 750 choices, under 40 were rosewood necks.

These are rosewood necks:

These are not. These are rosewood fretboards with maple or mahogany necks:

Thank you for allowing me to let off some steam on this peeve of mine :mob

To be clear these are my guitars. Just using their pics as examples but, it almost never fails. I search for a rosewood neck and click on the listing/ad and look at a pic or two and immediately click out.

My favorite neck is a rosewood neck on a Stratocaster. I've got some nice rosewood fingerboards on a Telecaster, Jazz Bass and a few Les Pauls.

It's almost as bad as folks using tremolo or 'trem' when they're really commenting about a vibrato bridge.

or 'Floyd Rose' to refer to a double-locking vibrato setup that is not Schaller branded

or 'steel' when they mean stainless steel (one implies steel, the other does not imply stainless)

or 'tone' when they mean timbre
