I'm planning to buy a black Music Man Stingray, but I'm unsure which fingerboard to choose. I'm concerned about the difference in sound. Could you explain the difference?

The general consensus regarding this question is that maple gives you a snappier, slightly brighter tone with more attack while a rosewood board gives you a darker, smoother tone with more warmth. Often the difference is subjective and subject to personal opinion. There are also other factors to consider such as playing style, what type of strings you use, tone settings, and amplifiers to consider. Try both maple and rosewood to form your own opinion.
