Rosewood fretboard to Maple board?

Is changing from rosewood to maple difficult? Should I have a luthier do this?

Ive got a cheap Ibanez 7 with a fixed bridge. MIJ though. I was thinking of having replace the rosewood with a maple. Then get the body repainted.

Anyone have experience with this mod?
