    I love both, but lean towards rosewood. I like the feel a little better.

    Rosewood or Ebony, 'nuff said. Although Mike has found some great exotic fingerboards that I could probably settle down with.

    Not that I would ever want it on a Strat but I have a Gibson with a Ritchielite or something fretboard and I really like it. From what I understand its composed of wood fibers and resin and looks more like ebony. It's gotten a bad rap as being plastic, but it feels really nice under the fingers. I've had rosewood strats before but I'm used to and prefer the feel of maple. But that ritchielite feels good too. I'm not sure it would look right on a Strat or Tele but I could be wrong about that having never seen one with it.
