Re: Changing Fretboard Wood?
I wouldn't want a replacement neck because I would like to keep this guitar, so really don't care about resale. I bought the bsb because I really love how the 7vwh neck felt when I tried one out in a guitar store, the shape of the neck just felt better than my dbk (personal preferance here)...and the bsb and 7vwh have the same necks. So if the neck is comfortable, there is no way that I'd want to replace the whole neck, maybe just the fretboard. I know it'll be more expensive to rip the fretboard off and replace it vs. a replacement neck, but I'm willing to spend the extra cash if I have to. Ebony fretboards to me just play smoother and sliding notes are easier than a rosewood fretboard, seems like the rosewood fretboard has more "drag" to it if that makes any sense. Just seems to me that a bsb with an ebony board would play just as good as a 7vwh, maybe even better due to the raw neck so it definitely has me thinking now.
