Leo Fender was a radio technician - not a luthier - so goes the "excuse" for why his first round of guitars sported maple necks without separate fingerboards. At the beginning of the tumultuous '60s, Fender started offering rosewood fingerboards on its instruments. Much has been said about the relative sonic merits of maple vs. rosewood. Although rosewood-capped necks are undeniably warmer sounding, Mr. Fender's reasoning - according to legend - behind the move to rosewood, was simply that he didn't like the visible "wear" on the maple. Players of all genres immediately lined up on both sides of the debate - which rages on. If you're a rosewood fan, the Fender Custom Telecaster Pro Closet Classic - with its quartersawn maple neck and dark rosewood fingerboard - is for you.Fender Custom Shop Telecaster Pro Closet Classic Features at a Glance:
