Hey guys, I'm checking out Warmoth necks on Ebay for my Strat project, can anyone tell me how pau ferro compares to maple? According to Warmoth's site, it's brighter than rosewood, but not as bright as ebony. I found a neck that's absolutely perfect in every way, except that it has a pau ferro fretboard instead of rosewood. I had planned on going with a rosewood fretboard for a little more warmth, but I might consider going with pau ferro if it's not too bright. Does anyone know anything about this wood? Thanks.
