Maple or Rosewood neck for Miami Blue?

If OP hasn’t purchased yet and you can see these in person, the Miami blue photographs really weird. It looks way more blue in the pictures then it does in person. I have the AM Pro II in Miami blue with maple. It’s way more towards turquoise than that classic blue in many of the better store photos. I remember opening the case for the first time and I was like, wait this is the Miami blue? It grows on you quickly but Just a heads up.

I think you have to play them. I think the rosewood looks better, but maple had a feel/shape that I like better. Should be the same, but felt different to me. If all you care about is looks, there is something slightly "off" about the blue/rosewood combination and it makes me really like it. I know that makes no sense.
