I'm new in the forum and i would like you to help (if you dont mind ) me choosing the right wood combinaison for my first PRS
I'm planning to buy a 408 with the Artist Package option ! What an amazing guitar, just tried out one in my local music store, waw. That 408 McCarty Tobacco (10-top) was the basic one with the mahogany neck and rosewood fretboard. It sounded good !
With the Artist Package, I have mahogany neck + ebony fretboard (no Braz for me...) for standard and I would like you to give me your opinions about every wood combinaison for the neck + fretboard, if possible...
I can choose, with the Artist Package, between these options :
NECK : Mahogany, East Indian Rosewood and Figured Maple.
FRETBOARD : Ebony Fretboard, East Indian Rosewood and Figured Maple (for maple neck only).
Is a Rosewood neck with rosewood fretboard should be too "dark" ?
Is a Maple Neck with Maple fretboard is too "slappy" ?
My actual guitar is a Noiseless Strat with Maple neck with Maple fretboard, I would like to buy something realy different, warmer and with "big balls" () in disto but not sacrificing a good clear sound that's why I am interested in buying a 408 !
I realy like the unfinished wood of the Indian rosewood neck (aesthetic).
Can you guys give me your opinions and experience about your PRS necks for 408 and other models
