You say rosewood neck means rosewood neck.
Maple neck means maple neck.
Finger board is not a neck.
Amazing how many people can’t tell the difference.
Not to be pedantic, but wouldn't the picture be self-exanatory?
Looks the same to me.
I never knew that people confused these things, but now that we're talking about it I'd like to see a maple fretboard on a rosewood neck...
How 'bout a maple board on black limba?
and a 335 is not a hollowbody.
I would like to see a Mint condition guitar that doesn't show signs of wear
This is my 1960 Strat. It has a rosewood neck. Leo would have kicked your ass out of the shop if you told him it wasn’t.
I've got an East Indian Rosewood neck from Warmoth, for Tele, and it is "solid" but it isn't. There's a truss rod channel in there, and the skunk stripe is canarywood.
And believe me, especially for the first 2-3 years it sounded NOTHING like a maple neck with a rosewood fretboard.
But I wanna say something: I am not warming much to the look of the one piece rosewood neck on a solid color or pastel 50s design guitar body. I think the rosewood looks much better on a Natural finish body, such as mahogany. And so, I think that second guitar (Lake Placid, rosewood board only) looks much better than the first with the clash of the light blue body and the all dark neck and headstock. The Fender Stratocaster was designed with a mostly maple neck in mind.
Someone make a rosewood neck with a maple board, then advertise it as a maple neck. Watch the mushroom clouds proliferate.
Please post a photo of your instrument!
That one looks interesting.
Fender Select Channel bound neck?
Wow! Is that a Thorn? Whatever it is, show more of it man, don’t tease us!!
How about an Arctic Birch board on a maple neck?

I was going to a guitar show and a friend asked me to find him a "Fender Strat in sonic blue with a rosewood neck." I thought he was talking about the recent Fender models with the solid rosewood necks. Went to the show, found one for a reasonable price, and sent a pic to my friend. He said, "No, I want one with a rosewood neck." I said, "This is a rosewood neck." He was baffled and couldn't understand that Fender actually made a solid rosewood neck Strat. Now that they do, rosewood fretboard would be a more clear description.
I can't say how Leo would have reacted in 1960, but the Fender catalog from that year clearly calls it a "white maple neck with rosewood fretboard," not a rosewood neck.

Not mine, it's a Fender rarities mode . Saw it in YouTube.
That is repugnant
