Hi, All the basses I have, and all my previous basses have had rosewood or phenolic fingerboards. I like the look and feel of the rosewood type and it soaks up a bit of the sweat/grease etc from your fretting hand when playing in hot environments (most pubs for example), and so never becomes too slidey or sticky. Does anyone have any views on this or Pros for the use of Maple fretboards. Maybe this is getting too specific and nobody gives a damn about fretboards, but we'll see! Thanks in advance for your attention. Baz.
