It's been up on this forum for a while, no-one is interested, seems maple is out of favour :wink:

That link to the one on Yahoo japan looks nice, I've never liked 3TSB, but with a tortoise shell scratchplate it looks really good!

looks like me and John are the only maple guys here ;) I have 4 strats and only BST62 has rosewood, all other have maple fretboards.

It's about time, I never understood why most Strat players prefer maple. Tele players are even worse!

I disagree about the scratchplate, I prefer Marcus'. Once you change from white or off-white plastic, you get dangerously close to SRV territory - a real ugly Strat!

On a Strat, I agree! Unless it's a custom colour, candy apple red or Lake Placid Blue & rosewood look lovely together.
