    I like the rounder woodier tone of rosewood for a Strat or Tele.

    I do too, Doug, and I just prefer the way it looks too. Welcome to Fender-Talk!

    I need some roasted maple in my life!

    I just ordered the coolest neck yet, from Musikraft. It is a Snakehead Tele neck of roasted maple. The fretboard is something called "Brazilian Walnut", not really walnut. Also locally called "Ipe", it is very hard and probably similar to Rosewood. The coolest thing is, this wood was reclaimed from the old Coney Island boardwalk!
