    I used to be a die-hard rosewood guy, but in the last few years, I've come to prefer maple on my Fenders...go figure.

    However - I liked the AmProII neck so much, I bought one and put it on my American Special - and I did go rosewood, since I already had one in maple:

    Happy NGD. That finish is top shelf. To get knobs off, stick 2 picks under the knob from opposite directions and pop the knob off.

    I also have this guitar. Its a killer and I absolutely love it. The color is really great and it plays very well. If you don't have it already, get it before its gone. No regrets here!!

    Thank You. Great idea with the plastic straw. I have lots of them laying around. Will give that a shot today.

    Just get it snug at the post, it'll be just fine.

    Don't like spoons because of potential dents...

    The back of the neck on the Player is satin urethane. From the Fender site “Neck Finish: Satin Urethane Finish on Back of Neck with Gloss Urethane Headstock Face”

    My Player definitely has a satin neck finish, although it feels different from that on my Ultra Luxe.
