yup it's the best guitar ever and the fretboard is rosewoodRichard Tyszka said:I recently joined and wanted to share my new purchase. 2005 JEM7VWH made in June I suspect. # F0501621. I have Team J. Craft case, tags and headstock decal. Neck looks pretty dark so I am unsure if it is Ebony or Rosewood. I was very suprised on how light this thing is...sweet. Very nice piece and am enjoying playing it.
