    Which one would you pick guys? I have been seraching local market and came across few LPB Strats and Teles. Some had maple fretboards and some had rosewood or other dark. I kind of get feeling that blue looks best with maple fretboard. Which one would You pick? I am in favout of maple fretboard or one piece maple neck. Can be a little roasted which i would not mind. How do you feel about it ? Tell me your pick and why? I find Blue to fit the best with blue colour while grey blue to be the one that fits best with dark shade fretboard. Believe me or not some colours make a great pair. What do you think? Show which one You like best

    I prefer the look of rosewood on lpb especially like it is on the american original telecaster. That thing looks amazing

    LPB is one of those colors that can go either way. But I prefer a dark fretboard. I just like the contrast of a dark fretboard on a light color wood neck.

    Maple works for me:

    But then I agree that LPB is a color that looks good whichever way you go!

    Rosewood vote for me....and also, LPB is the only color I really like with a tort guard....although this one is Dupli-Color Bahama Blue.

    That’s really sharp, the maple makes the LPB stand out more.

    Either one looks good, I mean LPB just works with anything.
    I have one of each, but I think the rosewood looks best.
