I'm getting ready to order a new NF3 but can't decide which to get... rosewood fretboard or leave it maple. Just how much difference will it make? Everything I own has rosewood... so the logical answer is rosewood. But, should I try the maple for a different sound? Any ideas? Suggestions? This will be matched with an HX/DA with a 2x12 Stealth cab.

Thanks guys!

I would think the idea of an NF3 would be to get a twangy sound......................... that would make maple my choice!

Although all the trees are kept equal by hatchet, axe, and saw, i choose to spend your money on maple.

I'm in the maple camp here - works really well with NF.

I've had and do have both Maple and Rosewood. I have two guitars with Rosewood now and one with Maple. I like them both, but the Maple seems to be faster neck in my opinion and has better sustain. Just my opinion.

As others have said - Maple - for that style guitar :D

PRS Flame Maple looks WONDERFUL ;)

For that guitar and those pickups, maple is the only choice... Narrowfield pickups are very cool but they need Maple, Ash, Korina etc to show off their true potential...
